Everton's Morgan Schneiderlin aims to 'overtake' Manchester United

Former Manchester United midfielder, Morgan Schneiderlin has stated that he "wanted to do more" for the Red Devils after completing his move to Everton.

Schneiderlin will wear the No 2 shirt at Everton, who will pay an initial £20m to United with the fee eventually rising up to £24m.

But Schneiderlin has found himself out of favour with new boss Jose Mourinho and out of the team, making a mere three appearances in the Premier League, all from the bench.

Speaking to Evertontv following the confirmation of his signing, the 27-year-old spoke of his excitement at starting fresh with the Toffees.

"He made other ones [first choice] than me and it is as simple as that", Schneiderlin explains. Obviously he (Ronald Koeman) was a massive player when he was a footballer. "I just want to do some good games and you can judge if I am good or if I was s--".

Gueye will have to wait to play alongside Everton's new recruit as he is now away with Senegal for the Africa Cup of Nations.

'Secondly I wish the very best for the future to all the players and all the staff of Manchester United'.

"I always like to link between players in midfield", added Schneiderlin.

"I am sad and happy, sad because I like him and he could be an option for us, happy because this is what he wants, to play every game and be important in the team".

When he became the manager of Southampton, I won't pretend it wasn't hard in the first few weeks because there were lots of speculation linking me with different clubs and I did try to leave. "It was a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to it again".

"James McCarthy and Maarten Stekelenburg have trained all week but we have to make a decision over whether they are game ready". You can only learn from the best and he gave me some nice advice to keep improving every day.

Failure to get a result at Everton would likely spell the end of City's title challenge, Koeman said, adding that his team would do their best to make life hard for Guardiola's side.
