Manchester United fans were delighted with Morgan Schneiderlin‘s performance against Feyenoord in Thursday night’s Europa League clash.
Schneiderlin like many others in the starting XI was given his first start under Jose Mourinho, but unlike the rest he showcased his spectacular ability when called upon by his manager.
The 26-year-old was one of the stand out performers in Man United’s 1-0 defeat to the Dutch side.
Fans took to Twitter to praise the Frenchman for his impressive performance:
I'll give a shout out to Schneiderlin on a decent performance. He hasn't done much wrong. Definitely our best player in the first half

The bright side to this 1st half has been Morgan Schneiderlin. He's been brilliant, solid, strong, tidy. It's been good to see. #MUFC

Hopefully this cements Schneiderlin in the team. He has the power, height of Fellaini but a classy passing range and composure in addition.

Despite the fact that he hasn’t seen any game-time under Mourinho, Schneiderlin has proven to the Portuguese boss that he can be relied on.
He put in a great shift with 92% passing accuracy, 67% tackles won and had completed 100% of his aerial duels.
The Frenchman looked lively on the pitch and his showing has proven why he played such a vital role at Southampton.
Schneiderlin had the perfect attitude heading into the game, instead of being upset by the fact that he hasn’t been on the first-team, he put his head down and has hit the ground running.
