Bastian Schweinsteiger takes to social media to reveal his excitement ahead of the FA Cup final

Bastian Schweinsteiger has taken to social media to reveal his excitement as Manchester United prepare for their FA Cup final showdown with Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils head into the game looking to end what has been a disappointing campaign on a high by lifting their fist trophy since Louis van Gaal’s appointment as manager back in 2014.

Schweinsteiger is set to miss the game after the Germany midfielder suffered a serious knee injury earlier in the campaign.

However, the World Cup winner is clearly looking forward to playing his role from the stands at Wembley as the Red Devils prepare for their crunch clash against the Eagles in north London.

Schweinsteiger posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account on Friday and wrote: “Nice view over Wembley! Looking forward to a great final in a fantastic atmosphere tomorrow! #WeAreUnited”
