Spurs target Schneiderlin returns to Southampton training

Morgan Schneiderlin has returned to training at Southampton.

Morgan Schneiderlin has returned to training at Southampton.

The Daily Star says Tottenham target Schneiderlin sat out his club's final pre-season friendly with Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday after claiming he wasn't mentally or physically ready to play.

Angry manager Ronald Koeman - who accused Spurs and their new boss Mauricio Pochettino of unsettling the France ace - warned Schneiderlin there would be 'big problems' if he did not change his frame of mind this week.

And Schneiderlin was one of the first Saints players to arrive at the club's New Forest training base yesterday morning and took part in a two-hour training session.

Koeman must now decide whether to include Schneiderlin in his squad for Sunday's Premier League opener at Liverpool.
