Manchester United new-man Morgan Schneiderlin has insisted his side wants to win every trophy possible this season. The midfielder arrived from Southampton last summer for £24m, and expects his new side to deliver the hunger to get trophies.
The Frenchman watched his side play out a 3-0 win over Ipswich last night in the Capital One Cup, a tournament he hopes to win. However, the No.28 knows that despite the glory of the competition not being as fancy as the Premier League or FA Cup, it still won’t be easy to come by.
“They’re very hard games,” Schneiderlin told MUTV.
“Ipswich will come to Old Trafford knowing it’s massive for them. They will be buzzing and giving their best. It’s going to be a massive challenge and we need to be on our toes. Last year I watched the match between MK Dons and Manchester United and nobody wants to go through that again.”
Schneiderlin is fully aware of the strains that competing for all the cups could have on United’s fixture list but he is adamant that a large and motivated group can cope with the demands in search of silverware.
“All the players are here to win trophies and we’re going to take every competition, including the Capital One Cup, very seriously. We want to play in every cup even if we play every three days. We are strong and have a big squad, so every player is keen to play every three days and win as many trophies as we can.”

United’s trophy drought is now stretching into 3 seasons. Sure, the Capital One Cup isn’t the most glamorous of trophies to win – but it can’t hurt!
