Germany coach Low: Schweinsteiger deserved farewell

Germany coach Joachim Low has paid tribute to Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Low has admitted he will miss Schweinsteiger following his retirement from international football.

"It was a farewell that Bastian richly deserved. He served the national team for twelve years and without him, our success in this time wouldn't have been possible," Low said.

"In the big tournaments we almost always reached the semi-finals.

"I always felt assured when he was on the pitch because he's a player with leadership qualities who isn't afraid to take on responsibility.

"I'll miss him, not just as a footballer but as a person and because of his great sportsmanship."
