Zlatan Ibrahimovic "happy" to see Bastian Schweinsteiger feature for Manchester United

Zlatan Ibrahimovic says he is delighted to see Bastian Schweinsteiger back in the fold for Manchester United after he played in their EFL Cup win over West Ham United.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has expressed his delight at seeing Bastian Schweinsteiger make his first appearance of the season for Manchester United.

The former Germany and Bayern Munich captain fell out of favour at Old Trafford when Jose Mourinho deemed him surplus to requirements after taking over as manager in the summer.

However, Mourinho recently ended the 32-year-old's exile and he was introduced as a substitute in the 86th minute of United's 4-1 victory over West Ham United in the EFL Cup.

Ibrahimovic told Sky Sports News: "I'm happy for him. I'm happy because the situation for him hasn't been easy.

"He has been working hard, he's kept patient and mentally it's not easy - especially when you have had a career just like his. I have nothing but respect for him and super happy that he's back.

"And also the person is fantastic, so happy to see him back on the field and you could see the crowd was happy also."

Schweinsteiger continues to be linked with a move away from United in January, with Brazilian club Santos reportedly interested in the World Cup winner.
