Next season Bastian Schweinsteiger will no longer be the only Schweinsteiger at FC Bayern Munich as his older brother Tobias Schweinsteiger is joining the FC Bayern Munich II team, the reserve side of the German Bundesliga record champions.

30 year old Tobias Schweinsteiger is a striker and will be one of the three over-23 years players at FCB II next season. The striker leaves 3.Liga (third Division) side SSV Jahn Regensburg to join FCB II, who currently play in the Regionalliga Süd, which is the regional fourth tier of German football.

The brothers won’t be playing in the same team but Tobias Schweinsteiger said, “Finally I am playing together with my brother at the same club!”

Then it will be the first time in their careers that Bastian and Tobias Schweinsteiger will be playing at the same club though not in the same team. While Bastian has been an FCB player since his youth days, Tobias has been a journeyman having played for SpVgg Unterhaching, VfB Lübeck, Eintracht Braunschweig, FC Ismaning and twice for SSV Jahn Regensburg.

For Tobias Schweinsteiger it is now about helping younger players at FCB II to make it to the first team and become professional footballers. With FCB II in a restructuring phase the older of the Schweinsteiger brothers could be a key player for the team.
