Lukasz Podolski has hinted Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger could continue his football career in the MLS.
Following Jose Mourinho's arrival at Old Trafford the former Germany international was dropped to the reserves and Podolski is less than impressed with the United boss' treatment of his former teammate.
"When you look at the career Bastian has had, I can only say that what is happening there is simply not right for a player of his stature," Podolski told Bild.
"I do not know what Mourinho has discussed with Bastian. But is clear that it is not okay to drop someone like Basti to the reserves.
"A coach should always keep his door open to all players, and especially to players like Schweini."
The former Arsenal striker, who is eyeing an MLS switch reckons a move to the States could also work out for Schweinsteiger.
"I think America is great. Moving abroad is good for personality development and it would also be good for our children," added Podolski.
"Clearly it would be possible to play with Schweinsteiger in the States."
