BT Sport pundit Ian Wright looks on prior to the Emirates FA Cup Semi-Final match between Arsenal and Manchester City at Wembley Stadium on April 23, 2017 in London, England.

Ian Wright has told 606, which was broadcast on BBC Radio 5 Live on 27th November, that Everton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin was completely invisible against Southampton.

Schneiderlin was selected to start during the contest at St. Mary’s, but the French international failed to impress.

The out of form 28-year-old once again was bypassed in midfield, as Southampton cruised to success.

The Saints beat Everton 4-1, to inflict further misery on the Toffees.

And Wright believes that Everton need to appoint a stronger manager to ensure that Schneiderlin’s performances improve.

The former Arsenal striker said: “They need to get a big character in as manager who will shake that squad up. “Morgan Schneiderlin might as well have had an invisibility cloak on today.”

Schneiderlin has taken a battering from Everton fans recently, with his attitude coming into question.

The former Manchester United man has been one of Everton’s worst performers of the campaign, with the Merseyside club’s form terrible.

The Toffees are currently in 16th place in the Premier League table, with concerns that they could get relegated growing by the game.
