Indeed, Schweinsteiger is yet to make a Premier League appearances for the Red Devils this term as he looks to break into the first team at Old Trafford.

Schweinsteiger posted the picture above on his Instagram account and wrote the caption: “Had a great time with local kids at @manchesterunitedfoundation’s #SchoolsUnited event yesterday!”

And Mata also added the photo below, writing: “What a great day with @manchesterunitedfoundation #schoolsunited Always learning!”
