Bastian Schweinsteiger Believes Basel's Thorsten Fink Could Coach Bayern Munich

Bastian Schweinsteiger believes his former team-mate Thorsten Fink, now Basel coach, could one day take the top job at Bayern Munich.
Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has become the latest figure to praise the credentials of FC Basel coach Thorsten Fink, stating that the former Bayern midfield schemer could return to Munich as the team's gaffer in the future.

"[Even as a player] he taught us a lot about discipline, positioning and tactics. It was clear to all of us that he would one day become a coach. And who knows, maybe who could also come back to Bayern as trainer," Schweinsteiger told Abendzeitung.

Schweinsteiger joins Ottmar Hitzfeld in hailing Fink's qualities. The Swiss national-team coach also believes that Fink is a future Bayern coach, stating in September:

"I am convinced that Thorsten would make a very good coach of Bayern. He has the necessary mentality and self-confidence. At Basel, he has proven he can handle the pressure of managing a title favourite."

Bayern meet Basel tonight in the Champions League at the Allianz Arena with the Swiss side needing to win and hope Roma lose in order to qualify for the last 16.
