Bastian Schweinsteiger was all smiles with Owen Hargreaves after watching Manchester United book their place in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.

Juan Mata scored the only goal of the game as the Red Devils secured their place in the quarter-finals with a 1-0 win over Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Schweinsteiger continues to be frozen out at Old Trafford after apparently being deemed to be surplus to requirements by new manager Jose Mourinho.

However, his lack of first-team football does not appear to be getting him down.

He posed for a picture with his former Bayern Munich team-mate Hargreaves outside Old Trafford after Wednesday’s game and posted the snap on Instagram.

Schweinsteiger shared the picture above on his account and wrote: “Always great to meet my former mates like Owen at Old Trafford yesterday. 👍🏼”
