Schweinsteiger out for a month

Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is set to miss the start of the Bundesliga season and Germany's next two international fixtures, according to his club's chairman.

Speaking in Munich on Tuesday, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said the knee injury which Schweinsteiger aggravated during a pre-season match in the United States was likely to sideline the World Cup winner until mid-September.
