Bayern Munich fullback Philipp Lahm has admitted that they’ll miss new Manchester United signing Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The Germany international was the longest-serving Bayern player before he quit and Lahm believes the departure of an experienced head will have a lasting impact on the current playing staff, who are struggling to come to terms with his exit.
“It is normal that at the beginning it is tough,” he said, before adding: “without him we will move on.”
Bayern coach Pep Guardiola added: “Bastian was a legend at Bayern Munich. He spent 17 years playing here and won absolutely everything.
“He is really, really loved by the fans, and the people (at the club).”
