BASTIAN SCHWEINSTEIGER hit the golf course with new wife Ana Ivanovic whilst his Manchester United team-mates flew to Holland to begin their Europa League campaign.
The German World Cup winner, 32, has been left off Jose Mourinho‘s European squad list and will play no part for the Red Devils against Feyenoord.
The pair were pictured getting into a golf buggy at the Ringway course in Hale, just miles from their £4m mansion.
Frozen out by Mourinho, the German insists that he is still ready to play if needed and has ruled out move to another team in Europe.
United will look to put derby day disappointment behind them as they face a Feyenoord who have won 12 of their last 13 games.
