It has been reported that Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola has shrugged off Bastian Schweinsteiger’s decision to quit for Manchester United.
The veteran midfielder is due to complete his move to United today.
“It was his personal choice,” said Guardiola to Kicker.
“We have talked about it, he would like to go through this experience again. It is his choice.
“I thank him very much for his commitment and it was an honor, a great honor to be his coach.”
Schweinsteiger lost his first-choice status at Bayern last season as Guardiola favoured former Real Madrid and Liverpool ace Xabi Alonso in midfield.
