Photos: Morgan Schneiderlin nets winner as Man United signings make debuts
Manchester United supporters were treated to the first glimpse of Louis van Gaal's summer signings in a 1-0 win against Club America
Louis van Gaal gave Manchester United fans their first glimpse at his new-look side after the Red Devils eased to a 1-0 victory over Club America in Seattle on Friday night.
The United boss started new signings Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian and Morgan Schneiderlin for their opening game of their summer tour of the United States.
And Schneiderlin, who moved to United in a £25m deal from Southampton despite interest from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, broke the deadlock in the fifth minute.
The France international managed to get his head on Juan Mata’s cross to make United’s superior aerial advantage count against their Major League Soccer opponents.
Van Gaal introduced World Cup winner and Bayern Munich legend Bastian Schweinsteiger at half-time following the Germany international’s £15m switch last weekend.
United supporters in Seattle didn’t get the chance to witness the goalkeeping ability of Real Madrid target David De Gea, who missed the first friendly of the summer due to injury.
