Joachim Low has revealed there is no timetable on Schweinsteiger’s return to fitness.
The United midfielder made the provisional squad for the euro 2016, despite making just 6 appearances in 2016 for United.
And Low is hoping the veteran midfielder will be back to full fitness and make the 23-man-squad needed.
But while centre-back Mats Hummels is progressing well following a calf problem, Low concedes that Schweinsteiger’s return is more difficult to predict.
“With Hummels, it’s clear when he comes back. Certainly he will need a few more days,” he said ahead of the friendly with Slovakia in Augsburg on Sunday. “With Bastian Schweinsteiger, we don’t know when he will be back in training with the team.”
Low confirmed that a number of first-team stars will be rested for Sunday’s game, with some – including Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller and Mesut Ozil – left out of the travelling party altogether.
