I see that Bastian Schweinsteiger has retired. I believe he was a top player for Bayern and Germany. For me he was a stand-out in the 2014 World Cup final and one of the great midfielders.
Not in the same league as lampard, Scholes or Gerrard.A very very good footballer and an important part of Germany’s golden generation.
Horrendous at Man ure but they all were.
Not a Zidane, Iniesta or Gazza. But up there Lampard, Gerrard and Scholes.
He's one of the greatest German players ever and has a more impressive honors roll call than all of them.Not in the same league as lampard, Scholes or Gerrard.
1 of Germany golden generation but more of a work horse than a goal scoring mid
I lived next door to a Wolfgang when working in Germany one time. Even his wife used to take the piss out of him for having so stereotypical a German name.Honourable mention for Wolfgang Wolf, the former Wolfsburg manager.
He's one of the greatest German players ever and has a more impressive honors roll call than all of them.
Different playing style, but easily in the same pantheon, if not arguably above, those mentioned.
Phenomenal career and a player well respected and rightly so... But if you had to choose 1 player out of Gerrard, Lampard, Scholes, Viera or Schweinsteiger... It wouldn't be him would it?121 caps and 24 goals for Germany: won WC and was runner up in EC
445 top flight games and 54 goals: won CL, FA Cup, German Cup x 7 and Bundesliga x 8.
I'd say it's not a bad career!! Was a workhorse but you need them in any good side.
