Such a warrior he is!
Liverpool midfielder, Emre Can, has criticized José Mourinho's treatment for his former German International team-mate, Bastian Schweinsteiger, at Manchester United.
Bastian appears to have no future at Old Trafford following Mourinho's arrival in the summer. He was dismissed from United's Europa League squad for the knockout stages and had been training away from the first-team.

He began the season training with the kids and being cut out of the official team photo.
Emre is struggling in understanding why his fellow midfielder was forced to train away from the rest of the United first-team squad, until a U-turn last week.
"He's a very good guy, and he is a legend. I don't know what happened there, but I think they (Manchester United) don't have too much respect for him," he continued.
Emre also said that Bastian is always somebody who worked hard and is always a gentleman.
But the player has won the PR war by refusing to publicly hit back and by being a good presence around the training ground.
Can said, "I just know one story from me, when I came up to the first team (Bayern Munich), Bastian was the first one who came to me and said, if you need something, come to me."
"It was a big help for me, and I'm very thankful for that. I'll never forget that," he continued.
