Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has been frozen out of Jose Mourinho's first team at Manchester United, has now commented on his relationship with the Portuguese tactician.
The 32-year-old spoke at a press conference ahead of his farewell game for Germany against Finland on Wednesday, insisting that he has a good relationship with new United boss, despite being forced to train with the reserves.
"My wish would be to continue playing for Manchester United. I have no personal problems with Jose Mourinho," he said.
"I know what Mourinho and the club want, I know what I personally want. It's a respectable relationship between the coach, myself and the club, that's very important to me.
"One thing is for sure: I'm not going to stop playing football. I still believe in my own ability. I could still help Manchester United, if given the chance.
"An absolute dream would be to continue to play for Manchester and to help them."
Mourinho has seemingly placed Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera, Morgan Schneiderlin and Michael Carrick ahead of the German in the pecking order at the club, but Schweinsteiger reiterated that he will not join another team in Europe.
He also commented on a potential switch to Major Soccer League in the US, and hinted at a future move.
"The MLS transfer window is closed. So it won't happen this season," he added.
Schweinsteiger joined United from Bayern Munich in July 2015, and has since made 31 appearances for the club.
