Morgan Schneiderlin mentally collapsed in PSV draw, says ex-Man United man

Johnny Giles slams Morgan Schneiderlin's latest performance for Man United

Morgan Schneiderlin mentally collapsed during Manchester United’s goalless draw with PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday, according to Johnny Giles.

The France international was unable to inspire the Red Devils to a much-needed victory over the Eredivisie winners, meaning United will require a win against Wolfsburg in Germany in their final group-stage game.

Schneiderlin doesn’t really want the ball and mostly it is sideways or backwards

Although the £25m summer signing finished with an 83 per cent pass completion in the Champions League clash, Schneiderlin was unable to create any clear-cut chances for Louis van Gaal’s side.

Former Leeds and United midfielder Giles wasn’t impressed with Schneiderlin’s performance against the Dutch champions, with the Irishman adding that the 26-year-old isn’t comfortable making forward-thinking passes.

“Schneiderlin doesn’t want to get on the ball. He mentally collapsed in the second when he was the one who needed to get on the ball.

“He was almost trembling because he didn’t want the ball there. He was losing it most of the time anyway.”

Giles added: “Schneiderlin doesn’t really want the ball and mostly it is sideways or backwards.”

Schneiderlin has scored one goal in 10 Premier League appearances for the United following his £25m move from Southampton in the summer transfer window.
