Heavily-criticised Everton star just wants to 'turn the page' after Europa win

Morgan Schneiderlin has opened up about his season at Everton admitting that he just wants to make a difference and that he sees it as a fresh start under new boss Sam Allardyce.

In an interview with Sky Sports, the midfielder spoke about wanting to impress his new manager as well as the allegations from earlier in the season that he was sent home from training.

“I want to prove (myself) in every game,” admitted Schneiderlin.

“I haven’t had the chance to play the last two games but it is going to be up to me to show what I can do and that I can make a difference for the team.”

The midfielder was then asked about the accusation that himself and Kevin Mirallas were sent away from training by David Unsworth in November for a lack of effort.

Schneiderlin had previously denied the story but this time added that the story “surprised” him and that he didn’t find it a “very nice” experience.
