Bastian Schweinsteiger thanks fans for Player of the Month award

by Tanveer Arayan

Bastian Schweinsteiger has thanked Manchester United fans for choosing him as their November Player of the Month.

The 31-year-old won the award with 55% of the votes after he started in every game, set up the winner against Watford and scored his first for Man United in the 1-1 draw with Leicester.

It was a month in which United played uninspiring football on the whole but went through undefeated and Schweinsteiger played a key role in that.

It will be interesting to see what midfield partnership and formation Louis van Gaal chooses against West Ham because with Michael Carrick now available for selection, he’s got a choice to make.

Personally, I’d love to see the 4-3-3 return and Morgan Schneiderlin operate as a sole holding midfielder but our usual style this season has seen two midfielders in the holding role, so that’s probably just wishful thinking.

Either way, Schweinsteiger is more than likely going to play a central role for United in more ways than just on the pitch itself.
