Bastian Schweinsteiger made his eagerly awaited Manchester United debut against Club America on Saturday and it is safe to say fans were buzzing.
After coming on at half-time, Schweinsteiger slotted into a holding midfield role. Wearing the number 23 shirt, the 30-year-old showcased his trademark passing ability and dictated the game. Schweinsteiger really managed to show glimpses of what he is capable of, including a lovely flicked pass to set up a chance for Adnan Januzaj.
A stellar debut from the midfielder has left United supporters desperate to see more of him in action. Here are some of the thoughts United fans had while watching Schweinsteiger in a red shirt for the first time:
@robbro7 Funny watching Schweinsteiger. Don't want to get ahead of myself, but he might just be the best footballer in history.

United fans obviously understand the significance of signing a player like Schweinsteiger. Now that the 30-year-old has whet their appetites, the supporters will be hungry for more from the German captain.
It is a hugely exciting time to be a United supporter and the club aren’t finished with their transfer business yet. Sergio Ramos has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, as has Nicolas Otamendi.
