Morgan Schneiderlin has admitted that he is “not fully satisfied” with his first year at Manchester United.
Schneiderlin joined the club from Southampton for £24million last summer, but has found regular game time difficult to come by under Louis van Gaal.
The French international has started 24 games in central midfield in the Premier League this season, only four more than Michael Carrick, while Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has been ruled out through injury since January, has started 13.
Schneiderlin has found himself benched for crucial games throughout the season however, including both 1-1 draws with Leicester, as well as defeats to Arsenal, Bournemouth, Norwich and Stoke.
Speaking to L’Equipe 21, the 26-year-old has discussed a mixed first campaign at Old Trafford.
“I’ve been like the squad — some good matches and some that were not as good,” he said. “But everything is definitely different at Manchester United. A good match at Southampton can be viewed as a bad one in Manchester.
“When I signed for Manchester United, I wanted to play all the matches — to play well all the time.
“So I’m not fully satisfied. I’m not dissatisfied, I’m not satisfied — I’m in the middle.
“But it’s my first year. I’m convinced that I’ll come back very, very strong next season.”
