Manchester United fans pleased with Bastian Schweinsteiger’s performance against Paris Saint-Germain

by Sam Peoples

Bastian Schweinsteiger made his first start for Manchester United in their 2-0 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain and he put in a solid shift.

The German played 45 minutes alongside Michael Carrick in a holding role and he applied himself well in the middle of the park. Schweinsteiger’s long passing was hugely impressive in the first half and helped Man United set up a number of attacks.

Despite the 30-year-old’s best efforts, United went into the break 2-0 down. After recovering from a minor knee injury prior to the game, Louis Van Gaal was taking no chances with Schweinsteiger’s fitness and brought him off at half-time.

United fans were extremely upbeat over the performance of their new midfield maestro despite the scoreline:

With his first start under his belt, Schweinsteiger will be looking to kick on in a United shirt.

The early signs are promising and more performances like this one would be welcomed at Old Trafford next season, starting with the Premier League opener against Tottenham Hotspur in under two weeks time.
