Lingard has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign at Man United having taken an opportunity given to him by Louis van Gaal.
Schweinsteiger, meanwhile, is currently serving a ban at United after accepting a violent conduct charge from the FA. The German sent a message to his teammate via his official Twitter account:

Lingard picked up an injury in United’s 2-1 defeat against Bournemouth last time out, with Louis van Gaal saying that supporters will have to “wait and see” to find out how bad it is.
The Englishman has performed admirably over the course of the campaign, which has delighted fans as he has risen through the ranks at the club.
Van Gaal will be keen for both him and Schweinsteiger to return to first-team affairs as quickly as possible as United are in the midst of an injury crisis.
