Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has backed Morgan Schneiderlin to succeed if he completes a move from Southampton to Old Trafford, but he hinted that the French midfielder may not be a first team regular straight away.
Schneiderlin has been linked with a move to United over the last month, yet Southampton manager Ronald Koeman suggested on Monday that 'no serious bid' had been received for the midfielder who has also been the subject of transfer interest from Arsenal.
