Schneiderlin: I'm not the finished product, Schweinsteiger and Carrick will improve my game

The France international is ready to battle with Marouane Fellaini, Daley Blind and Ander Herrera.

MORGAN SCHNEIDERLIN Morgan Schneiderlin intends to learn as much as he can from Manchester United duo Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

The midfielder is one of five new signings, including Schweinsteiger, to arrive at United ahead of the new Premier League season.

And despite the competition for places in midfield being fierce, Schneiderlin believes he can only learn from Carrick and Schweinsteiger.

“Of course it [playing with the duo] will help my game,” he told the club’s official website.

“I am not the finished product; I am just 25, which is the middle age for a professional footballer.

“Training week in and week out with these players helps you learn and improve your game. I’m ready for it.”

With Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini and Daley Blind all in contention for a midfield place, Schneiderlin is ready for the challenge.

He added: “It’s very intense. There are a lot of games in the Premier League, Champions League and domestic cups and it’s good competition for us.

“We all work hard together but, of course, it’s the manager’s choice who will play – that’s normal.

“I want to play and the other players want to play, but the manager chooses the team and you always have to push to get into it. At a club like United you would expect nothing else.”
