We came across some classy responses to the German’s goodbye message and it was worth sharing.
Sad to see a legend like Bastian Schweinsteiger leave Manchester United and the Premier League. A real shame that we didn’t see his best.

While it is hard to accept his departure, it is a fact that things never really worked out for him at Old Trafford. We wish him all the luck for his future and his adventure in the MLS.
Bye bye Schweini!
