Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has declared that he is not motivated by the pursuit individual accolades or by getting a “good rating” from the media, stating that his only interest lies in helping his team win games.

After being asked a question on his apparent eagerness to stay away from the headlines during an interview with the official Manchester United magazine Schneiderlin said, “I do, because I’m a team player. I don’t play for chasing praise from anyone.”

The Frenchman, a ยฃ24m summer signing from Southampton, cost four times as much as Bastian Schweinsteiger and almost the same price as Memphis Depay, but has been happy to take a back-seat in the fame game and just do his job for the team as best he can.

He went on to explain: “Of course, you have to play as well as you can but I don’t play to have a good rating in the newspaper or anything like that. I just play to win games and give my team the best possibilities.โ€

Though not always a guaranteed starter, Schneiderlin has played most of United’s games so far this season and has been an important figure at the base of the midfield – something that has no doubt been one of several contributing factors to the club’s improved defensive record.


"I think a lot of players are working very, very hard and a lot of players are getting praise around us because they score or they give assists in their position,” he said of his defensive role. โ€œBut a lot of players are working hard, making some crucial challenges and doing some good things. Yet sometimes, of course, we are bit out of the spotlight, if I can say that. But for me I don’t care about being in the spotlight. I just like to win!“
