The former Celtic midfielder signed for Saints last month.
Schneiderlin told the Daily Echo: â€œVictor is a good player and adds something to our squad.
â€œHe is good on the ball, which makes him a very good player, but there are many players in the squad who can play there.
â€œWe have got Corky and Ward-Prowse for a start so it is not definite that it is going to be Victor Wanyama and me who are going to be playing in the centre of midfield this season.
â€œBoth of us need to show we are worthy of playing for Southampton.â€™â€™
