Former Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has hit out against his old manager Louis Van Gaal, claiming the Dutchman restricted his creativity on the pitch.

Van Gaal signed Schneiderlin in 2015 for £20million but says he moved to Old Trafford for the prestige of the club, not the manager.

Schneiderlin said Van Gaal's 'strict' coaching style prevented him from playing with his 'gut' and in turn damaged his confidence.

Speaking of his decision to join Manchester United, Schneiderlin explained how he spoke with Van Gaal but it was in fact the appeal of the club that made him put pen to paper.

The 30-year-old later admitted that Van Gaal's tactical instructions were too restrictive, and ultimately prevented United from playing with freedom.

Despite being regularly selected under Van Gaal, Schneiderlin - along with the likes of Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Matteo Darmian - failed to hit the heights expected of him under the Dutchman's leadership.

Following Van Gaal's dismissal, Schneiderlin was allowed to leave United to join Everton in January for £20m by his successor Jose Mourinho.
