Cape Town - Bastian Schweinsteiger has been advised by Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge to end his nightmare spell at Manchester United as soon as possible.

This, despite the Germany international returning to training with the United first team on Monday after being exiled since the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford during the off-season.

Schweinsteiger had previously trained with the club's Under-21's this season, but always maintained he would be ready should Mourinho decide to call on him.

After Monday's training session, the Germany international wrote on Twitter: "Felt great today! Team is in good shape, results will follow!"

Rummenigge, though, still feels the former Bayern star should seek an exit during the January transfer window after being treated so poorly by Mourinho.

"My wish for him is that he finds a solution once the transfer window opens in January," he told Bild.

Rummenigge also criticised the Red Devils boss for mismanaging Schweinsteiger, adding: "It's difficult to manage a generation change but, nevertheless, you have to do it with tact."
