Schweinsteiger steps in to solve supporter’s shirt dilemma…


Who thought shirt numbers would cause such a kerfuffle?

We’ve seen Luke Shaw and then Manchester City help out fans who have ended up with the wrong number on their back, and now Bastian Schweinsteiger has joined in the trend.

The German international jumped in to save the day after a fan posted a Facebook message to the midfielder complaining about his No.23 shirt.

Despite wearing the number in pre-season, Schweinsteiger eventually took the No.31 jersey, which caused Florian no end of pain…


But the World Cup winners showed he’s all heart with this response. Good on him.
