Morgan Schneiderlin hails ‘amazing’ Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger

Morgan Schneiderlin has spoken of his admiration for teammates Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger, as well as his desire to excel alongside them at Manchester United.

Schneiderlin came to Old Trafford earlier on in the summer for a fee of £24m and has quickly settled into life up north.

The Frenchman has enjoyed a confident start and looking ahead to the future, Schneiderlin is excited at being able to play alongside Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

“I am enjoying getting to know all my team-mates but playing alongside the likes of Michael and Bastian has been a very nice experience,” he said.

“They are amazing players and I just want to do my best to link up with them and to understand their game a bit better.

“That will come with more game-time and we also talk a lot during the games, so hopefully we can continue to do well together.”

After years of desperate searching, United appear to have finally located a strong backbone to their side and an antidote to a notoriously soft midfield underbelly in the form of Schneiderlin.

Despite only playing two games under Louis van Gaal, Schneiderlin looks right at home. No player has covered more distance (24.2km) than the Frenchman so far in the Premier League and that sort of energy in midfield is a huge asset to have.

There have been some excellent signings by Louis van Gaal this year but the more Schneiderlin plays, the more important and crucial he is going to become to United.

Schweinsteiger, Carrick and Herrera will all have to rotate and earn their places in the side but so long as Schneiderlin is fit, you get the feeling he will be the first midfielder on the team-sheet this season.
