Man Utd fans love Schweinsteiger’s heartfelt message over Europa League final

Manchester United fans have praised Bastian Schweinsteiger after he wished the Red Devils good luck for tonight's Europa League final.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side will go in search of silverware this evening in Gdansk, taking on a Villarreal team managed by former Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

United are favourites to come out on top in tonight's showpiece event but are likely to be without club captain Harry Maguire, who did not train with the rest of the team yesterday.

Support has been flooding in for the Red Devils on social media as they aim to secure a first trophy of Solskjaer's reign and the club received a message of support from former player, Schweinsteiger.

The German won the FA Cup in his first season at Old Trafford in 2015/16, but missed out on claiming the Europa League the following campaign.

Schweinsteiger left the Premier League to join MLS Chicago Fire in March 2017, meanwhile Jose Mourinho guided United to European glory two months later after defeating Ajax.

Despite playing no part in the club's previous success in the competition, the 36-year-old hopes to see the club secure the trophy for a second time in four years.

"Dear Man Utd and fans, today is a good day to win the Europa League again," he tweeted.

"I'll keep my fingers crossed and wish you all the best! Crossed fingers. Basti."

His message was well-received by United supporters, who were quick to thank the former Bayern Munich midfielder for his kind words.

One supporter tweeted: "Thank you Bastian! It was a pleasure to have watched you in the Man Utd jersey. Regardless of how it ended, we would forever treasure the memories. Thank you."

"Legend. Wish you were at Manchester United now. Ole would have appreciated a legend player like you in a proper manner," added another fan.

"Once a red, always a red."

"How nice, thank you Basti…Classy player, classy guy. Such a pleasure to have seen you play for United, just wish it had been longer."
