Bastian Schweinsteiger: It was an ‘honour’ to score my first goal for Manchester United

Manchester United’s Bastian Schweinsteiger has revealed it was an “honour” to score his first goal for the club in the 1-1 draw against Leicester City on Saturday.

Schweinsteiger fired in a header just before half time at the King Power stadium after Jamie Vardy had opened the scoring for the hosts.

The result meant Man United missed the chance to go top of the Premier League and Schweinsteiger admitted he would have happily swapped his goal for the three points:

The German has built a reputation over the course of his career of delivering at crucial moments and he certainly did that against Leicester.

A draw was probably a fair result, although United did have chances to win the game.

It was the performance which will be much more concerning to Louis van Gaal and supporters, as United struggled to create chances in open play. They will need to have much more of a cutting edge against West Ham United next week.
