Bayern München optimistic over Schweinsteiger return
Munich - FC Bayern München midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger could be back in action again before the end of the year, according to executive board chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
The 30-year-old hasn't featured since aggravating a knee injury in the Major League Soccer (MLS) All-Star game on 6 August, but now stands on the cusp of making his return to team training.
"It's conceivable he'll play again in 2014," Rummenigge told Germany's largest specialist football magazine, kicker. "It's possible he'll be back in team training [during next week's international break]."
