Schneiderlin Key against Club America

The decisive moment came early, maybe too early, as you always felt the red devils had more 'umpfh' packed into their new-look dynamite, but were settled down quickly by the early goal and tended to play within themselves. Louis van Gaal’s newest recruit Morgan Schneiderlin, a tower of a Frenchman, sent a looping header to the far side of the Club America goal to open his account for the red devils and make certain LVG maintained his one hundred percent record in the pre-season tournament.

If we are honest, we would admit that the former Southampton midfield general’s arrival has been clouded with the gold dust from the Schweinsteiger arrival from Bayen Munich – a more prestigious club, a more decorated player. These are not up for debate, however this isn’t either: Morgan Schneiderlin is the second most important signing United has made in the last 3-4 years. Schweini brings the leadership, sexy calm and glamour. Schneiderlin is the engine room, he brings the steel, power, and fear factor back to the United midfield – enter at your peril, the French axe man lurks.
