“Schweinsteiger is being plagued by injuries and is missing a certain lightness.

“Both should be asking themselves whether they would do their body a favour by retiring from international duty.

“Maybe retiring from Germany duty could help them make a fresh start at Galatasaray and Manchester United.”

Those were the words of Lothar Matthaus who is Germany’s most-capped player with 150 appearances, while Miroslav Klose is the only other player to have won more caps for the national team than Podolski’s 129 and Schweinsteiger’s 120.

 Bastian Schweinsteiger and Lukas Podolski have been advised by former Germany Captain Matthaus to retire from international duty and focus on their club career instead.

According toToday,  Schweinsteiger and Podolski have been key figures for Germany since making their respective debuts in 2004, but Matthaus believes the time has come for the duo to make way for younger players.

In a related development, Schweinsteiger might be getting paid 14 million pounds by Manchester United to terminate his contract. The mid fielder still has two years left in his contract with Manchester United. According to Metro with Jose Mourhino targeting Paul Pogba to strengthen his midfield, it is unlikely that Schweinsteiger will have many opportunities to impress at Old Trafford next season.
