Schneiderlin must join Manchester United, says former France boss

Former France national team manager, Raymond Domenech says that it is important for Morgan Schneiderlin to join Louis van Gaal’s side

After saying that they are no longer a bigger club, former France manager, Raymond Domenech has stated that compatriot, Morgann Schneiderlin would do well to leave Southampton for the Red Devils.

The midfielder has starred for the Saints in the last two seasons and reports claim that the Red Devils are closing in on a move for the midfielder who apparently prefers a move to Arsenal. However, Domenech feels that Old Trafford is the right place for him.

“For him, [United] is a good move,” Domenech told reporters.

“If he wants to be with the French national team, then he has to be in this Champions League – but if he stays at Southampton, no luck.”

“Manchester United is a good move for him,” the ex-France boss continued. “United are better than Southampton, sure, but it’s not [Manchester] City, it’s not Chelsea. For him, the first thing is to leave Southampton.

“After, if he gets a team just behind the three big teams, it’s good. Maybe after, he’ll come through. He is good enough for the Champions League.”
