(Photo) Wayne Rooney praises out-of-favour Man Utd teammate

Bastian Schweinsteiger may have been cast aside by Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho but his teammates still appear to be rather fond of him.

United star Wayne Rooney shared a selfie with Schweinsteiger following his final farewell to the Germany national team in Wednesday’s testimonial game against Finland.

Rooney described the experienced midfielder as being a ‘great player and a great person’.

Schweinsteiger was part of Germany’s 2014 World Cup-winning squad and retires as Germany’s fourth most-capped player of all time.
