Former Manchester united midfielder Paul Scholes does not believe that his old club have enough quality up front to be a big force in European football this season. He thinks that Manchester united are just a defending team with no real attacking threat.
Ex-Manchester united star Paul Scholes has already expressed his opinion on the current team and United boss, Louis van Gaal, a few days ago. But he spoke again when United managed to secure only one point in the UEFA Champions league group stage match against PSV Eindhoven this week.
Paul Scholes has criticized Manchester united for their performance in the 0-0 draw with PSV Eindhoven. Scholes told BT sport Europe, “There’s a real lack of quality in the final third.” He added, “You can defend as well as you want but if you don’t have the forward players who can create a bit of magic now and again then I think you’re going to struggle and you have to win your home games in Europe.”
By saying this he has questioned Manchester united forwards’ ability and intentions. He compared Anthony martial with Michael Owen and Lineker and also commented that martial just likes to drift to the left wing instead of looking for goals.
Paul Scholes compared the red devils with two giants in European Football. He said, “You look at these teams across Europe, your Barcas and your Bayerns. It’s your forwards that make the difference.”
After the PSV Eindhoven draw, Manchester united stands second in group B of the UEFA Champions League group stage. United must secure three points in final away game vs Wolfsburg to qualify for the last 16, depending on the result in the other match between CSKA and PSV.
