Morgan Schneiderlin promises Manchester United fans he’ll keep improving

Morgan Schneiderlin now feels good at Manchester United after having time to adapt into Louis van Gaal‘s side.

The 26-year-old has shown glimpses of his ability since his £25m transfer from Southampton in the summer transfer window.

While there have been poor performances, on the whole Schneiderlin has been pretty impressive and looking ahead to the future, he’s hoping to keep improving.

Speaking to United’s official programme, Schneiderlin said: “I had a period of integration into a new side and a new environment, so it was only a matter of time to adapt. Now I’ve done that, I feel good.

“Even if I am a little hard on myself, I know I can do better, so there is more to come from me. It happens to every player who signs for a big club, sometimes you need time to adapt and it was the same for me. I will be better and keep improving as the weeks go on.”

Schneiderlin’s self-deprecation is representative of his modest approach and that sums up the sort of role he plays but while he’s not scoring and stealing the headlines, the Frenchman is still appreciated by the fans.

He added: “For me, it’s nice to hear this. I want to reward them with my performances.

“All I can say is they can expect more from me in the next weeks and months. I’m hoping I will show it’s my job to get the ball and pass it around, make tackles and have a high-energy playing style. So it’s good for me to hear this about the fans. At Manchester United, we have to play well every week. I have to play well in every game and I know that.”

It’s fighting talk from Schneiderlin. He’s under no illusion that he and the team has to get better and that’s good to hear. However, speaking is one thing – doing it on the pitch is another.

West Ham will be no pushover at the weekend but we’ve got the better players and if we play to our ability, we should be coming away with three points from Old Trafford this weekend.
