Morgan Schneiderlin has admitted that he should have moved to Tottenham instead of Manchester United back in 2015.
Schneiderlin wanted Spurs move
He then moved on to Everton and is now back in France, his homeland, with Nice. He has recently taken part in an extensive interview with The Athletic, and he has revealed he made the wrong choice in snubbing Spurs.
“I had interest from Tottenham because Pochettino had gone there. A couple of other teams called my agent, but when Man United were interested, there was no other choice. Man United and Real Madrid are the two biggest clubs in the world. You can’t refuse Man United but if I was to listen to my heart, I would have signed for Spurs. I knew the manager and how he would be with me, his training style. He called me to ask me to go to Spurs. He wanted me 100 per cent.”
Perfect Pochettino match
One of the main reasons for Spurs’ interest in the midfielder will have been due to his connection with former boss Mauricio Pochettino. Schneiderlin missed just five Premier League games under the Argentinian during the 2013/14 campaign, which was Pochettino’s only season in charge of Southampton.
Would you like to have signed Schneiderlin?
That was arguably when he was at his peak. He made 88 appearances for Everton, but just 34 of those came in his last two seasons. Now with Nice, he has appeared in all six Ligue 1 matches so far this term and he will now be hoping to put his Premier League woes behind him.
