Boateng debunks Schweinsteiger’s claims
Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng is disagreeing with former teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger’s claim that Manchester United are a bigger club.
Schweinsteiger, after the club’s pre-season in USA, had claimed the English side were a bigger team than his former club.
“Bayern Munich is a big club — but Manchester United is bigger. When we [Bayern] were in China people knew us, but we were not so big in America.,” the German legend had said.
Schweinsteiger’s comments were criticized as disrespectful to Bayern, but former teammate Boateng defended him.
“I don’t think he meant it the way it was perceived. I believe he meant the international attention,” Boateng said.
“Be that as it may, I don’t believe that Manchester United are bigger than FC Bayern.
