The retired German international experienced FA Cup glory during his two years at Old Trafford between 2015 and 2017.


Bastian Schweinsteiger sends a message to Manchester United fans ahead of the Europa League final wishing his former team good luck for the match against Villarreal.

Schweinsteiger was given the No. 23 shirt at Man United initially before being handed the No. 31. He made his Premier League debut in the 1-0 win over Tottenham in August 2015 and scored his first goal for the club in the 1-1 draw against Leicester City.

The former midfielder enjoyed consistent minutes on the pitch, and even won the FA Cup, in his debut season at Old Trafford but his second season was the one to forget. He was demoted from the first team after Jose Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal in the dugout.


Nevertheless, he has no ill feelings towards his former club, and his latest Twitter post ahead of the Red Devils’ showdown against Villarreal in Gdansk on Wednesday proves it.

Schweinsteiger wrote in a Twitter post: “Dear Manchester United and fans, today is a good day to win the Europa League again.

“I’ll keep my fingers crossed and wish you all the best! Basti.”
