Bastian Schweinsteiger’s brother Tobi on Monday evening sent out a tweet, with simply the words ‘no respect’ as claims continued about the midfielder’s ‘banishment’ at Manchester United.

Of course it can’t be completely clear what Tobi is referring to, but given he sent the tweet out as reports in Germany grew of Jose Mourinho ‘humiliating’ Schweinsteiger, and asking him to train with the reserves, it doesn’t take a leap of faith to believe it’s related.
Tobi’s reference may be towards the reports, rather than anything that has actually happened at Carrington, and only time will tell.
A big Manchester United fan, Tobi was thrilled to see his borther sign for the Old Trafford club, and will obviously be upset if a bitter departure is on the cards.
The responses to Tobi were very mixed, with many fans agreeing there’s been a lack of respect, but also many slamming the player and a supposed lack of commitment last season.
