'I've never been so upset at someone leaving' - Man Utd fans react to Schweinsteiger exit

The midfielder says he had a great time at Old Trafford but has revealed he missed out on the chance to bid farewell to his team-mates

The general mood amongst Manchester United fans was one of sadness as the club confirmed Bastian Schweinsteiger is set to leave to join MLS side Chicago Fire.

Schweini's Utd career destined to fail

Schweinsteiger, 32, joined the Red Devils last season from Bayern Munich and helped them win the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal last season.

However, he was quickly cast aside by current United boss Jose Mourinho and Schweinsteiger has since taken the decision to seek pastures new in order to earn more first-team football.

United confirmed the move on Tuesday morning and a large section of the club's fanbase expressed their misery at the news, while past team-mates also wished Schweinsteiger luck for the future.

Schweinsteiger soon followed up by posting a video on his official Twitter account thanking United fans for their support, leading to more tributes from supporters.

Schweinsteiger even received a few heartfelt messages from his old club Bayern, though some also decided to poke fun at the midfielder's exit!
