Manchester United midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has said that he is having to "adapt" to Louis van Gaal's "strict" style of management. 

The former Southampton man has been a key part of United's success in the Premier League this season following his £24million move from the South Coast, starting in six of seven matches so far; United are now top of the league after a 3-0 win over Sunderland.

But the Frenchman has stated that he is still learning to play under Van Gaal's style, an approach that he has not previously experienced. 

Van Gaal's authoritarian rule has already seen numerous players frozen out and sold on after failing to fall in line. Angel Di Maria, Victor Valdes and Rafael Da Silva are such examples.

"Van Gaal is a very strict coach," he told Telefoot. "It's a new management approach, one I haven't experienced before. You have to adapt because a lot of things have changed."

The 25-year-old, who spent seven years at St Mary's, admitted that he was loving his time at Old Trafford. 

"Manchester United are the greatest club in the world. You can see it in the enthusiasm among fans when we play a game."
