Southampton fans react as Morgan Schneiderlin is sent off in Everton defeat

Former Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin endured a miserable match for current club Everton as they were beaten 3-0 by Lyon in the Europa League on Thursday night, and Saints fans were quick to have their say on his display.

While the 27-year-old was one of the Toffees’ more impressive performers last season, he has been poor this term and after his tackle fell favourably for Bertrand Traore to score Lyon’s opener at the Groupama Stadium, he was then sent off for a second bookable offence 10 minutes from time.

The Frenchman left the south coast outfit in 2015 after seven seasons at St Mary’s, but after failing to make an impression in just over a year with Manchester United it seems he is now struggling at Goodison Park following the sacking of Ronald Koeman.

Southampton supporters were quick to have their say on Schneiderlin via social media, and while some described him as “a shadow of his former self” right now, others said it was “painful watching” him.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
