The Dutch player believes his former teammate could become a Munich executive after retiring from football

Bastian Schweinsteiger’s testimonial match was full of surprises.

Not only Bayern Munich won 4-0, with Basti scoring the last goal of the match with the Bavarian shirt, but he also seems to have a future in the club.

For his former teammate Arjen Robben, Schweinsteiger could become a Bayern executive in the future.

“Yes, of course. But he has to want to do it,” he told the reporters as quoted by Sportskeeda.

“I don’t know what he is planning, maybe he will do something completely different. I don’t know.”

“But, of course. I mean, just look at [Tuesday]: somebody like this in your club is always useful,” he concluded.
