Bastian Schweinsteiger meets a young Manchester United fan as he closes in on a return to action
Bastian Schweinsteiger has always been quick to pay tribute to Manchester United’s fans for their support following his arrival at the club from Bayern Munich in the summer.
And the Germany international took to social media on Tuesday morning to post a picture of himself meeting a young Red Devils fan as he closes in on a return from injury.
Schweinsteiger posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Always nice meeting some of our younger @manchesterunited fans.”
Schweinsteiger has been out of action since suffering a knee injury during the 1-0 FA Cup win over Sheffield United at the start of January but is understood to be close to a return.
United conceded a stoppage-time equaliser as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
That result left them six points adrift of the top four heading into their clash with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Saturday lunchtime.
