Bastian Schweinsteiger was thrilled to make his Manchester United home debut on Saturday...

Bastian Schweingsteiger was clearly humbled by the reception he received as he made his home Manchester United debut during Saturday’s win over Tottenham Hotspur.

The Germany international was a second-half substitute and played the final 30 minutes as Louis van Gaal’s men claimed victory in their opening game of the 2015-16 campaign.

Schweingsteiger was given an amazing reception from the Old Trafford faithful as he made his first home appearance for his new club following his summer transfer from Bayern Munich.

And the midfielder took to social media to pay tribute to his club’s new fans on Sunday afternoon.

He shared the photo above on his Instagram account and wrote: “Many thanks for your fantastic support at my first @manchesterunited match. #mufc”
