Schweinsteiger out of United’s Europa League squad


German will not compete in Europe for United in group stages

Bastian Schweinsteiger has been left out of Manchester United’s Europa League group stage squad.

Schweinsteiger was told that he was free to leave Old Trafford before the window shut on Wednesday.

Mourinho said last week it would be “very difficult” but not impossible for Schweinsteiger to feature under him for United this season.

Promising defenders Timothy Fosu-Mensah, 18, and Axel Tuanzebe, 18, have been included by Mourinho.

Goalkeepers: David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Sam Johnstone

Defenders: Eric Bailly, Phil Jones, Marcus Rojo, Daley Blind, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian, Axel Tuanzebe

Midfielders: Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard, Michael Carrick, Ashley Young, Ander Herrera, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marouane Fellaini, Morgan Schneiderlin, Memphis Depay

Forwards: Wayne Rooney, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford
