Morgan Schneiderlin has admitted that he must accept he will not start every game for Manchester United under manager Louis van Gaal.

Signed from Southampton for £25million in the summer, Schneiderlin has had to accept a rotational role alongside midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger and Michael Carrick this season.

The Frenchman was an unused substitute in the 3-0 defeat to Arsenal last weekend, while he was also a substitute against both Liverpool and PSV earlier in the season – a fact Daniel Storey finds difficult to comprehend.

Schneiderlin admits that he had grown accustomed to playing each game during his time at Southampton – he started 91 Premier League games in three seasons there – but that “things have changed” now he has moved to Old Trafford.

“I have played a lot of matches,” Schneiderlin said. “The coach made a lot of changes in attack and even in midfield and you have to get used to it.

“I used to play all the games with Southampton but things have changed. I happened to be on the bench, you have to take it philosophically.”
