Bayern: Schweinsteiger injury not serious

The Bundesliga champion is not too concerned by the midfielder's ankle problem and expects him to be back shortly.

Bayern Munich has made it clear that Bastian Schweinsteiger's ankle injury is nothing to be concerned about.

The German champion went down 2-1 to the MLS All-Stars on Wednesday, despite taking the lead through a stunning strike from new signing Robert Lewandowski.

Bayern coach Pep Guardiola was unimpressed with the over-zealous nature of some of the All-Stars' challenges, and the Spaniard refused to shake the hand of opposite number Caleb Porter immediately after the final whistle.

Schweinsteiger, only introduced as a substitute for Juan Bernat with 10 minutes to go, picked up an ankle problem but a message on the club's official Twitter account calmed any fears of any serious injury.

"Update on @BSchweinsteiger: He has a bruised ankle but nothing serious," it read. "Get well soon, Basti!"

Bayern returns to competitive action next week when the club takes on Borussia Dortmund in the German Super Cup.
