Juan Mata congratulated his new Manchester United team-mates on their first appearances for the Red Devils after a 1-0 victory over Club America on Friday night.

Morgan Schneiderlin, who moved to Old Trafford from Southampton earlier this month, scored a headed winner in the fifth minute after the midfielder connected with Mata’s cross.

Memphis Depay and Matteo Darmian also made their first starts for Louis van Gaal’s side before the Dutchman introduced Bastian Schweinsteiger at half-time.

And Mata, who is the second-most expensive player in the club’s history, paid tribute to the United summer signings on his Instagram account after the win.

Mata wrote: “Thanks #Seattle! Great atmosphere and first win. Congrats to the new players on their debut! @bastianschweinsteiger @memphisdepay #Darmian @schneiderlinmo4 good goal! @manchesterunited”

The Spain international has scored 16 goals in 50 appearances for the 20-time English champions following his £37.1m move to United from Chelsea in January 2013.
