Morgan Schneiderlin spent seven long years at Southampton. A spell which saw Saints' fall from grace with relegation to League One before helping the Saints' resurgence to become a fixture in the Premier League. <!-- ######## START FLOATED VIDEO SNIPPET ######## -->

So, it was no surprise that it would have felt a little strange for Schneiderlin as he makes his return to St. Mary's as a Manchester United player following his summer move to the Manchester giants.

The French international was victorious in his return to the South Coast as his United side won 2-3 in a back-and-forth contest in Southampton.

Schneiderlin said: "It was strange to go to the away dressing room but I needed to stay focused on my game.

"Of course, I've got good friends at Southampton and I know everyone from the top to the bottom of this club, so it was strange for me. It's a great club but I'm happy with the victory because I am a Manchester United player.

"But, I'm sure Saints will have a great season; they have great players and a great manager."
