Bastian Schweinsteiger has said it was a “great honour” to score his first goal for Manchester United earlier this term.
Schweinsteiger powered home a header against Leicester City in November to cancel out Jamie Vardy’s opener.
It was a memorable week for the German as he had forced Troy Deeney to concede a late own goal winner against Watford the week before.
However, Schweinsteiger picked up a three-game suspension against West Ham United at the start of December.
Man United seemed to go into crisis mode in Schweinsteiger’s absence as they suffered consecutive defeats Bournemouth, Norwich City and Stoke City but they were much improved upon the midfielder’s return in the 0-0 draw against Chelsea last time out.
Schweinsteiger’s experience and leadership has been on show at various points over the course of the campaign and he has really endeared himself to supporters. The German is entering the twilight of his career but he should prove to be an invaluable player for United in years to come.
