Jose Mourinho has issued a heartfelt apology to Bastian Schweinsteiger for the manner in which he brought about the German star's departure from Manchester United.

Schweinsteiger was thrown straight into the starting lineup for this evening's match with Montreal Impact and marked his debut with a header to give Chicago the lead after 17 minutes.

"It was the last thing I told him before I left - "I was not right with you once, I have to be right to you now".

"I don't want to speak about him as a player, I don't want to speak as I buy or not to buy". I had to let him go and now publicly we wish him and his wife a very happy life in Chicago.

"I feel sorry for the first period, I told him".

"I feel alright. 90 minutes was okay, at some moments I was a little bit exhausted, but I stepped up and wanted to push for the draw and for victory". It was very special and a very good feeling, not only for me, but also for the team.

EpiPen Voluntary Recall Expanded to US
The St.Louis, Missouri-based company initially did not include the United States in the recall, but later added them to the list. The U.S. recall follows an global recall of roughly 81,000 EpiPens in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Japan in March.


Knee injury sidelines Knicks' Rose for remainder of season
This should also quash any talks of re-signing Rose for the Knicks, at least at the level that Rose has been looking for. He averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists for a team with a 29-47 record entering Sunday's game against Boston.


'Food, not boobs': Carl's Jr. and Hardee's are ready to grow up
Photos of disembodied lips, a naked woman with burgers covering her breasts, and women in bathing suits cover the walls. Will Carl's Jr . and Hardee's have better luck?


Check out his goal and piece of skill below.

The defensive midfielder scored one goal in 31 games in all competitions in his first season at Old Trafford but made a mere four appearances in the current campaign.

And the 32-year-old said he was "not nervous but just happy to play football" as he returned to the pitch for his first MLS game.

Both inch flawless, both putting a teammate through on goal - it was Schweinsteiger doing what he does best.

Derek Henkle, a reporter at the press conference, asked the former Manchester United midfielder whether he envisaged taking the club to a World Cup - the response was incredulity, as well as hilarity on social media.

While Schweinsteiger is undoubtedly past his best, there's no doubting his ability when it comes to receiving the ball and dictating play.
