Southampton midfielder Schneiderlin forever grateful to Newcastle boss Pardew
Schneiderlin revealed it was Pardew who added the defensive skills to his natural passing game that has made him the player he is today.
"He was the one saying to me to improve on my defensive skills," he told the Daily Echo.
"He was the one who was telling me 'come on, you need more tackling.' "So, thanks go to him and his words every day saying that to me."
