Bastian Schweinsteiger sent a heartfelt message to Anthony Martial after the striker turned 21 on Monday

Bastian Schweinsteiger took to social media to wish Anthony Martial a happy birthday after the French striker turned 21 on Monday.

Martial was unable to help Manchester United give him an early birthday present on Sunday afternoon after the Red Devils were pegged back and held to a disappointing 1-1 draw by Everton at Goodison Park.

The result compounded United’s stuttering form in the Premier League in recent weeks, with the Red Devils now having won just two of their last 10 games in the top flight.

However, Martial will surely have been looking to take his mind of United’s stuttering form as he celebrated his 21st birthday on Monday.

Schweinsteiger, who is never one to miss a team-mate’s birthday, posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Wishing you all the best to your 21st birthday. Enjoy your day, @martial_9 🎊”

Manchester United are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table and 13 points behind leaders Chelsea after 14 games of the new season.
