Former Red Devils player Paul Scholes offered a damning assessment of the current squad as they continue to fight under interim manager Ralf Rangnick.


A little about the topic

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has branded the Red Devils a poisonous mess, urging his former club to try and steal Conte from Tottenham in the summer. Man Utd has so far survived the pitiful 2021-22 campaign, in which Solskjaer paid for the team’s poor start with his job, and his temporary replacement Rangnick also failed to get the best out of the enigmatic group. Manchester United are now in real danger of finishing outside the top four and extending their trophy race to five seasons, and Paul Scholes can’t foresee any improvement anytime soon.


What did Paul Scholes say?

Former Red Devils midfielder Paul Scholes, who made over 700 appearances for the club between 1993 and 2013, said the club just felt like a mess, player, staff and manager wise. Who wants to join this club? according to Paul Scholes it looks like a proper mess. It really does feel poisonous. Paul Scholes added about the lack of quality in Ralf Rangnick’s ranks, that there must come a point where you think these players are good enough.

According to Scholes, they know that Paul Pogba, Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Matic, Raphael Varane have a lot of experience and win trophies, but the rest of the roster have not proven themselves well enough to win anything. The former Red Devils midfielder says some of these players have played a lot now. Rashford, he had a lot of games, will they ever see these guys reach their potential? Will they ever be good enough to win trophies? Maguire, is he good enough? Lindelof, is he good enough? Paul Scholes also said that they keep saying how good they are, but they cannot produce what is required on the pitch.
