Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has warned the club’s manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, that his team will get destroyed against a proper team.
Scholes said this while reacting to Man United’s Champions League 3-2 win over Atalanta on Wednesday night at Old Trafford.
Man United came from a 2-0 down to beat Atalanta 3-2 at home, thanks to goals from Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“If we play like that [Man Utd vs Atalanta] against a proper team, it will be disastrous,” Scholes was quoted by Mirror UK as saying.
“He [Solskjaer] said before the game [it would be] 4-2-4 and it was exactly what it was. If they play like that, they will get destroyed.
“There was no connection between the team. Fred gets pushed out and [Scott] McTominay didn’t know where to go. If that happened, could you imagine [Kevin] De Bruyne playing against that?”
He added, “I get the United excitement, but that first half put me off the second half, and if United were playing a better team, they would be out of sight.”
