World Cup winner Schweinsteiger asks and gets football hero Scholes' shirt at half-time

​Bayern Munich star Bastian Schweinsteiger probably couldn't wait till full time to ask football legend Paul Scholes for his shirt.

Manchester United were playing Bayern Munich at an all-star game at the Allianz Arena yesterday.

When Scholes appeared in the second half with a blank replica jersey, many wondered what happened to his shirt.

He revealed that he had given it to Schweinsteiger (below).

"He asked me for a shirt at half time so I gave it to him. He gave me a shirt too, which was nice because he's an amazing football as he has just won the World Cup," said Scholes who scored the second goal in a 3-3 draw.

Scholes added: "It's nice to swap a shirt with such a great player - a man who's won the World Cup and many trophies with Bayern Munich... (speaking) to him for a few minutes was nice."
