After England and France, Australia. At 33, Morgan Schneiderlin decided to return to the other side of the planet. Although he was no longer in the plans for Nice, the French international with 15 caps decided to take on a new challenge six months after the end of his contract with the Riviera club.

The midfielder has just signed with Australian A-League affiliate Western Sydney Wanderers, according to RMC Sports. It will be a new experience abroad for Schneiderlin, who has also played for Manchester United, Southampton and Everton. On the other hand, he will leave Europe for the first time.

It will also be an opportunity for Schneiderlin to reunite with Marcelo, the former Bordeaux and Lyon player who has been playing for Western Sydney Wanderers since last summer.

Arriving in Nice in 2020 after twelve years in England, the former Strasbourg player has not played a single game since the start of the current season. He only played 56 games for the Aiglons in two and a half seasons.

Before him, other French players went to Australia. Starting with William Gallas. The 2006 vice-champion of the world moved to Perth Glory in the fall of 2013. As for Eric Boteac, another former Nice player, he moved to Brisbane Roar between 2017 and 2019.
