Morgan Schneiderlin:Why I’m happy to avoid Man United limelight
Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is happy to be unsung hero
Morgan Schneiderlin says he is happy to avoid the limelight at Manchester United
The France international has effortlessly slotted into Louis van Gaal’s side following his £25m move to Old Trafford from Southampton in the summer transfer window.
Schneiderlin, 26, has already formed strong partnerships with fellow midfielders Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger.
And the United man underlined that he is happy being a team player and doesn’t want to attract the headlines at the 20-time English champions.
Asked why he likes to avoid the limelight, Schneiderlin told United’s website: “Yeah, I do, because I’m a team player.
“I don’t play for chasing praise from anyone. Of course, you have to play as well as you can but I don’t play to have a good rating in the newspaper or anything like that. I just play to win games and give my team the best possibilities.”
The former Saints midfielder has scored one goal in 10 Premier League games since his big-money summer move.
Schneiderlin didn’t feature in United’s 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
Van Gaal’s men are in fourth place but a mere two points behind Premier League pace-setters Manchester City and Arsenal.
The Red Devils make the trip to newly-promoted Watford in their next Premier League game on 21 November.
