The United captain has put a dismal first half to the season behind him by scoring five goals in the last four games in all competitions, including the winner in Sunday’s visit to Anfield and Schneiderlin believes his teammate sets the example in the dressing room.
“Wayne is still the main figure at the club,” he said.
“He’s the one guy who has scored so many goals in his career and he will keep doing it. Sometimes you have spells where you don’t score but he has kept the smile on his face and trained hard.
“You saw his two goals against Newcastle were very good and today he scored another amazing goal. We need him in the second half of the season if we are to achieve something special.”
