Southampton fans react on Twitter to Morgan Schneiderlin's performance v FC Midtjylland

The Saints faithful couldn't help but notice the ironies of Manchester United losing to the same team that knocked them out of the Europa League.

Leaving Southampton hasn't necessarily worked out as well as several players would have hoped. Dejan Lovren has struggled at Liverpool and Adam Lallana hasn't made the impact at Anfield he would have desired. Rickie Lambert's move was a complete bust, while Morgan Schneiderlin is far from living the dream at Manchester United...

Indeed, on Thursday night, Man United lost 2-1 to FC Midtjylland, the same team that knocked Southampton out of the Europa League earlier this season.

Schneiderlin's plan to leave the Saints for Champions League football, then, hasn't exactly worked out so far.

And Saints fans couldn't help but comment on Twitter as Manchester United fell apart on the European stage once again.

Football can be cruel sometimes and Schneiderlin's career right now seems to be a good example. Either the ex-Southampton playmaker is rescued by a new manager at Old Trafford... or his move to Manchester United isn't looking too great with hindsight.
