Bastian Schweinsteiger Bayern Munich great retired from football in 2019

Bastian Schweinsteiger is backing German giants Bayern Munich to win the Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League this season.

The former Germany midfield maestro, who is considering a return to football as a manager, has no doubt the Bavarians have what it takes to have a successful treble-winning campaign. 

Hansi Flick's boys have continued their winning ways in the Bundesliga after the 2019-20 season resumed following a two-month suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"In a European comparison, it is a super team," Schweinsteiger told Frankfurter Allgemeine Sonntagszeitung.

"They can win the Champions League, especially since Liverpool has already [been knocked out].

"In the DFB-Pokal you also have a home game against Frankfurt. Even if the home advantage is no longer so great without a spectator, you know your own pitch better."

Schweinsteiger, who retired from football in 2019, has admitted that he is thinking of becoming a football coach. 

"If something interesting comes up at some point that I enjoy, I'll think about it," the 35-year-old said. "But when I do something, I want to win and get something done.

"It suits me very well to analyse games, after a long career in which I was constantly asked to have more time for the family."
