Bastian Schweinsteiger sends Twitter message to Manchester United fans - but is it enough?

The German midfielder has made a promise to United supporters.

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has taken to Twitter promising supporters that his side will work hard to bounce back from their Champions League exit and fall to the Europa League.

The 31-year-old joined Manchester United in a £14.4 million deal this summer, according to BBC Sport, but has endured mixed fortunes at Old Trafford thus far.

Schweinsteiger has often been short of the requisite fitness and pace in the Premier League, which was best demonstrated during United's 3-0 loss at Arsenal.

And is his latest tweet enough?

A lot of Manchester United players have taken to Twitter after bad defeats promising improvements so far this campaign. But what next? It has been more or less the same the whole way through.

Granted, the players can't go against their manager - and Louis van Gaal has been hit with most of the criticism for some poor attacking football from the Manchester outfit.

But is Schweinsteiger taking to social media after a painful loss, just like Juan Mata often blogs after a poor performance, really worth anything if things aren't going to change on the pitch?
