Schweinsteiger, Januzaj and more: Man United stars react to Club Brugge win

Manchester United midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger and Marouane Fellaini reflects on their 3-1 win on Twitter

Bastian Schweinsteiger described Marouane Fellaini’s goal as crucial after Manchester United beat Club Brugge 3-1 in the first leg of their Champions League play-off at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
