Bastian Schweinsteiger's birthday shows he is pretty popular

Bastian Schweinsteiger is busy with preparations for the MLS All-Star Game Wednesday in Chicago, but he still had plenty of former teammates and fans wish him a happy birthday on Tuesday.

The Chicago Fire's German star turned 33. Some of Schweinsteiger's former Bayern Munich and Germany teammates were among those to tweet birthday wishes.

David Alaba isn't German, but had some kind words about playing with Schweinsteiger.

Plus, the official team accounts got in on the act.

And of course, the wife.
