After the match, Camille also posted a photo on Instagram of herself holding a Schneiderlin scarf, alongside the cheeky caption: “Always support my babe even if he has big ears on this scarf 😂👂🏼”.
Schneiderlin becoming a key player for United
Of all Manchester United’s summer signings, Schneiderlin has been one of the most successful.
The France international, who completed a £25 million move from Southampton last summer, is becoming increasingly influential for the Red Devils and earned praise from Louis van Gaal after Sunday’s win at the Etihad.
"I don’t have to say that too loud because the last time I said I am very happy for Morgan Schneiderlin, after that he played not so well,” Van Gaal was quoted as saying by the Mirror.
"But today he played a very good match. He was a lot of times available to receive the pass but also defensively was very firm and strict and he played also a very important position in midfield.”
Schneiderlin not interested in personal praise
However, it’s fair to assume the praise won’t go to Schneiderlin’s head.
Back in November - in an interview with United’s official website, per the Daily Mail - the 26-year-old said his only interest is to work hard for the team.
“I’m a team player. I don't play to chase praise from anyone,” he commented. “Of course, you have to play as well as you can but I don't play to have good ratings in the paper or anything like that.
“I just play to win games and give my team the best possibilities.
“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.
“But 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.”
