Schneiderlin Rues Early Man United Exit

Morgan Schneiderlin believes he may have been hasty in leaving Manchester United for Everton as he still had more to give at Old Trafford.

The France international switch to Goodison Park in January 2017 for an initial £20million after he  spent 18 months at United.

Schneiderlin was restricted to 14 minutes of Premier League football in the first half of 2016-17 under United's then new boss Jose Mourinho, who was brought in to replace Louis van Gaal.

However, Schneiderlin wonders whether he could have stuck it out and won back his place in the side, rather than join Everton when he did.

He told BBC Radio 5 Live: "I wanted to do more and I had the capacity to do more. Maybe I jumped out of the boat too quickly when I didn't play for three months.

"When I look at other players having a great career at Manchester United, they all had a spell of four or five months when they didn't play."

Schneiderlin has struggled to recapture his best form in an Everton shirt and was even booed by his own fans during a game against Crystal Palace in February 2018, though he has started six of Everton's nine Premier League matches this term.
