EPL: Paul Scholes slams Man Utd star, criticises Solskjaer after defeat to City
Following the club’s Premier League derby 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday, Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has blasted Aaron Wan Bissaka.
Wan Bissaka was branded as a useless player when having the ball by Scholes.
He also criticized Man United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, over his tactics against Man City, adding that the Norwegian needs to start showing conviction if he wants to save his job at Old Trafford.
Man United lost to Pep Guardiola’s side at home following goals from Bernardo Silva and Eric Bailly (owngoal).
“The conviction has to come from the coach of the way you are going to play football,” Scholes told Premier League Productions.
“Ole has been here three years now and we have come here today not really knowing what he’s going to do.
“That makes the recruitment almost impossible because you are not buying players for a system. Look at Pep [Guardiola], he will buy players for a system. He brought [Jack] Grealish this year for his system, he brought [Riyad] Mahrez in for his system. Jurgen Klopp brings Diogo Jota in as another forward for his system. We’re bringing players in and trying to shoehorn them into positions.”
“Three years down the line you can see the evidence on the pitch, today and two weeks ago we’re a long way off. I do think we have got a group of good players, but Ole has to convince everyone that he’s the right man to find the right formation for this team.
“Stop messing about changing it for everyone else. He’s got to now have a conviction. Whatever it’s, I don’t care, just have that conviction. I said before that the 3-5-2 doesn’t suit the players in the team. Wan Bissaka is useless on the ball, brilliant defender but useless on the ball at right-back.
“Three centre-halves today, none of them that good on the ball. Ole has got to find a way and it is a job, by the way. There is a squad of players there that could be OK.”
