German football legend Bastein Schwensteiger absolutely agrees with the saying that “there is no place like home” when he revealed to the press that he may one day return to his country club Bayern Munich. This is coming just after a two months spell in the Premier League with Manchester United, as per Die Zeit (via ESPN).
The 31-year-old signed for Bayern as a youth team player in the summer of 1998 and ascended to the highest grade of the Bavarian club but remained in Germany with Bayern and won almost every trophy until this summer when he joined the Red Devils on a £6.5 million deal.
Manchester United was his dream club as a boy and he couldn’t resist to opportunity to actualise the dream of playing at Old Trafford when United came knocking.
When quizzed if he would return to his boyhood club at the expiration of his three-year contract with United, he said:
“Maybe that day will come.”
The former Bayern Munich man made 500 appearances for the Bavarian outfit from 2002 and he is being regarded as one of their best players ever.
He has featured in all the five Premier League matches for United this season and he appears to be growing steadily into a regular for Louis Van Gaal.
