Podolski blasts Mourinho, tips Man Utd outcast Schweinsteiger for MLS move

Bastian Schweinsteiger could make a move to the USA in a bid to end his Manchester United nightmare.

The veteran midfielder has been frozen out by Jose Mourinho and is believed to be on the hunt for a new club.

According to his former Germany teammate Lukas Podolski, the 32-year-old is a big chance of swapping the Premier League for MLS in the near future.

The former Arsenal striker also believes United boss Jose Mourinho has treated the World Cup winner poorly at Old Trafford.

"I think America is great. Moving abroad is good for personality development and it would also be good for our children," Galatasaray's Podolski told Bild.

"Clearly it would be possible to play with Schweinsteiger in the States. What happened to (Schweinsteiger) is unfair.

"It is not correct to deport Basti to the second team. A coach must always keep the doors open to all players."
