Schneiderlin accepts he is not for sale, insists Koeman

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman believes that midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin can play again for the club after accepting that he was not for sale this summer, the Southampton Daily Echo has reported.

The Frenchman has become unsettled this summer amid significant speculation linking him with a move to Tottenham. As a result, he declared that he was not mentally or physically ready to play in the club’s final pre-season match, but Koeman now believes he can play a part against Liverpool on Sunday.

It comes after talks held between Schneiderlin and Southampton which have apparently convinced him to stay, rather than pursue a reunion with former boss Mauricio Pochettino at White Hart Lane. He has been at Southampton for six years, and his form earned him a late call-up to his country’s World Cup squad, going on to feature in a group match against Ecuador.

Throughout the saga, Southampton have insisted that, unlike a number of other key players, that Schneiderlin will not be sold, and Koeman revealed that the player has agreed to stay. “It is difficult for him, but I said last weekend he should come back on Monday and he understood the situation and he accepted it,” the Dutchman said.

“It is difficult, but he has to accept and finally he accepts. He did very good training sessions (this week) and you see the qualities and then you see why we didn’t sell Morgan, because he’s a fantastic player.”
