Manchester United’s Morgan Schneiderlin has hailed “great club” Southampton as he prepares to face his former side on Saturday.
Schneiderlin joined Southampton from local team Strasbourg and helped the Saints climb from League One to the Premier League before joining Man United last summer.
The Frenchman returned to St Mary’s stadium for the first time as a United player in September and he is now preparing to welcome Southampton to Old Trafford. Schneiderlin revealed that he is looking forward to the clash:

Schneiderlin has been an integral part of United’s midfield this season, with his work in the middle of the park laying an excellent foundation for his teammates to build on.
He will need to be on top form once again against Southampton as they come to Old Trafford having won their last three games in all competitions.
However, United will be in equally buoyant mood following a 1-0 win against fierce rivals Liverpool last time out.
