Today celebrate his 31th birthday Bastian Schweinsteiger… But he celebrates this day not in Munich and not even in Germany. He celebrates it in Manchester because he is Manchester United player… Only few months ago anybody couldn’t imagine him not in Bayern jersey, and Bayern without him. He was an integral part of Bayern, like a soul of our club. When I get know that he will leave us, I cried a lot. It was like a losing old friend, who was with you many years of your life. Now I accepted the fact that he plays for Manchester, that he leaves us. But I feel myself empty, when I watch on Bayern squad. First thing which comes to mind when I watch on it is “Where is Basti?”… Dear Bastian, you leaved Bayern, but you still have a place in my head and soul. And for me you will always be a Bavarian, always be a Fußballgott. I understand: you just want to get a new challenge. I understand it and want to say thank you for 17 years which you spent at Bayern, thank you for good mood which you bring to me. Thanks for everything. I wish you all the best, happiness, health and good luck. Be happy, Bastian! Alles gute zum Geburtstag!
