Morgan Schneiderlin thanks Manchester United fans upon completing Everton move

by Sam Peoples

Morgan Schneiderlin has thanked Manchester United fans for their support upon completing his £20m move to Everton.

When Schneiderlin arrived, he was part of a ‘Schmidfield’ revolution alongside Bastian Schweinsteiger which filled Man United fans with hope that we’d finally sorted out our midfield problems which hadn’t been resolved since Paul Scholes’ retirement.

Unfortunately, it hasn’t worked out for either player at the club but Schneiderlin was always supported by the fans who were keen to see him play ahead of Marouane Fellaini and he made sure to thank fans for that belief.

Schneiderlin certainly sounds excited about getting a new opportunity with Everton. Speaking about the move he said: “Everton is a big club in the history of English football.

“I’ve always loved the atmosphere in the stadium. I’ve always liked playing here. I can’t wait to play and to represent this great Club.

“There is a manager in place here that I know, I know he can get the best out of me, I know his style and how he likes to play football. He was very good with me from the start and I enjoyed playing football under him.

“He was very good for me and, obviously, he was a massive player in his playing days and you can only learn from the best. At Southampton he gave me some great advice to keep improving every day and it was a pleasure to work with him.

“We spoke since the time I knew Everton would be interested. I know his ambition and why he came here. He believes in this and I do, too. We are trying to achieve something here and this is what I am here for. I know the fans have big expectations and we’ll do everything to make them come true.

“When I spoke with the manager and the people in place at Everton I understood immediately that they have a very good plan for the future of the Football Club. I just want to play football. I want to put my print on this Club and do everything to get Everton where it belongs.”
