Schneiderlin on "hurt" and "regret" as he details real reasons he left Man Utd
Morgan Schneiderlin says the "hurt" and "regret" caused by missing out on Euro 2016 convinced him to leave Manchester United.
The Frenchman was a regular in his national squad ahead of the tournament but after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford, was suddenly overlooked for selection.
The disappointment prompted Schneiderlin to evaluate his future, with the former Southampton midfielder opting to leave Man United and move to Everton, where he believed he'd get more first-team opportunities.
"My regret is to not have played the 2016 Euros, and I'll have that regret all my life," Schneiderlin to Eurosport.
"Between 2014 and 2016, I'm in pretty much every national team squad, the manager had faith in me, he'd told me.
"The period of two to three months where I played less at Manchester United cost me my spot as an important player for the France national team. It hurt me.
"I made the choice of going to Everton. I could have accepted to play less at Manchester United in 2016 when I came back from the Euros, but to not have played at the Euros, really hit me.
"I told myself the most important was to play even if it was in a less exposed team. I maybe should have stayed at Manchester United and kept my head down. I would have certainly had a chance, but that's life."
