The Manchester United midfielder sends a message to Jose Mourinho's men ahead of their FA Cup clash

Bastian Schweinsteiger has sent an upbeat message to Manchester United supporters ahead of their clash against Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Red Devils were criticised for a below-par performance at Hull City on Thursday night following a 2-1 loss to the Premier League strugglers at the KCOM Stadium.

Indeed, Jose Mourinho’s side saw their 17-game unbeaten run come to an end despite Paul Pogba temporarily equalising for the visitors as Mourinho’s men progressed 3-2 on aggregate.

Manchester United were 4-0 winners against Championship side Reading in the third round as Wayne Rooney equalled Sir Bobby Charlton’s goal record with his 249th goal for the Red Devils.

Schweinsteiger posted the above photo on his Instagram page and wrote the following caption:

“FA Cup at Old Trafford today! Let’s go, @manchesterunited!”

The Red Devils are in sixth place in the Premier League table and 14 points adrift of current leaders Chelsea.
