Schneiderlin was speaking ahead of the dead-rubber game with Apollon Limassol in Cyprus tonight, for which you can still get good odds with the vonbets bonus code 2018 and dismissed the reports as “fake news.”
Everton travel to Cyprus with the intention of fielding a youthful team, but have taken over 1,400 supporters with them for the trip, showing incredible support for the team.
“First I read about it in the newspaper and I was as surprised as I could be because there was no incident,” he said.
“I made a statement on my social networks saying it was fake news and it wasn’t true.
“I want to turn the page. It was not nice for me to see that and it is part of football. I have to deal with it.
“I want to prove (myself) in every game and of course there is a new manager coming in so it’s a fresh start for everyone. I haven’t had the chance to play the last few games and it is going to be up to me to show what I can do and that I can make a difference to the team.
“It needs to be the aim of everybody to show themselves and show that they can play. It is a chance to prove you can play.”
When Schneiderlin first arrived from Manchester United 18 months ago for £27m, he was seen as a revelation and immediately looked back to the form which made United sign him from Southampton.
However, since his move he has fallen out of form and down the pecking order among Evertonians. Idrissa Gana Gueye is seen by many as the preferred choice as a defensive midfield cover, and with Wayne Rooney taking a journey backwards within the team, Schneiderlin will have to work hard to regain his place.
That work can start tonight in Cyprus, however, as he travels with the squad and will be aiming to “turn the page” an push himself into contention for a starting place under new manager Sam Allardyce.
Allardyce, however, is not in Cyprus with the squad and will instead rely on his coaching staff of Craig Shakespeare and Duncan Ferguson to relay information on his players’ performances.
Do you think Schneiderlin can regain his place in the starting line up for Everton?
