The Manchester United midfielder has been regular in the national team but his place is now under threat after a frustrating first season at Old Trafford.

Schneiderlin has struggled for a consistent run in the Red Devils’ starting eleven since arriving from Southampton last summer for £25million.

There is also speculation in his homeland the 26-year-old could now be overlooked in favour of Leicester City’s Premier League title winner N’Golo Kante.

Schneiderlin told French newspaper L’Equipe: “It would be a lie to say that I am 100 per cent optimistic (on being selected).

“My chances are a little bit less. But it would also be a lie to say that I don’t believe. For two years, I have practically made every squad.”

The Frenchman cut a frustrated figure once again after being substituted during the interval of United’s eventual 3-2 defeat to West Ham on Tuesday evening.

And he admits life at United has been difficult, adding: “I have done like the group – some good matches and some less good ones.

“But it is clear that everything is different at Manchester United. A good match at Southampton is perhaps seen as bad at Manchester.

“When I signed, I wanted to play all the matches, be involved all the time, so I am not totally satisfied. I am not dissatisfied, I am not happy – I am in the middle.

“But this is my first year, I am convinced that I will return very, very strong next season.”
