Bastian Schweinsteiger sends a birthday message to Louis van Gaal after Manchester United's win over Tottenham

Bastian Schweinsteiger took to social media on Sunday afternoon to send a special birthday message to Louis van Gaal as the Manchester United boss celebrated his 64th birthday with victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

The Red Devils got their Premier League campaign off to a winning start as they secured a 1-0 victory thanks to Kyle Walker’s first-half own goal at Old Trafford.

Van Gaal, who took over at Manchester United last summer, turned 64 on Saturday as the Red Devils kicked off the 2015-16 season with a win.

And summer signing Schweinsteiger, who joined the club from Bayern Munich this summer, used social media to send his best wishes to his manager.

The Germany international posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Happy Birthday and all the best to our coach!”

Meanwhile, Van Gaal himself couldn’t help but break into song in his post-match news conference after watching his side secure three points in their first home game of the season…
