Juventus midfielder Khedira: Write off Man Utd star Schweinsteiger at your peril

Sami Khedira has warned critics not to say goodbye to Bastian Schweinsteiger just yet.

The Germany captain suffered a knee ligament injury at national team training last week and there are doubts that he will play again this season ahead of the summer's Euro2016 tournament.

Schweinsteiger has also endured a difficult debut season in England with Manchester United, which has further raised questions about his future in the game, but Juventus star Khedira knows the midfielder too well to suggest his sparkling career is already over.

"You almost get the feeling that he has left us for good and won't play football again, but anybody who writes him off is making a big mistake," Khedira said at a press conference ahead of Germany's friendly with Italy on Tuesday.
