Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has criticized manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, for his substitutions following the club’s UEFA Champions League 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

 

 

Young Boys defeated Man United following second-half goals from Moumi Ngamaleu and Theoson Siebatcheu as Cristiano Ronaldo’s first-half goal was not enough.

 

Solskjaer had subbed off Jadon Sancho when Aaron Wan-Bissaka was dismissed and Donny van de Beek at half-time before bringing off Ronaldo and Bruno Fernandes with 20 minutes remaining.

 

But Scholes felt Solskjaer’ missed a trick’ with his substitutions, even though he insists Man United’s defeat was ‘not a complete disaster.’

 

 

 

“I do think Manchester United probably missed a trick, they couldn’t get out their half because they were so deep,” Scholes told BT Sport.

 

“I think he [Solskjaer] should have brought more pace on earlier in [Anthony] Martial or [Mason] Greenwood, they didn’t do that and they have paid the ultimate price.”

 

He added, “It’s not a complete disaster. Not ideal obviously, you would like to go away and win.

 

“Jesse will be disappointed, it all stands from the sending off in the first half. United were quite comfortable up until that point.”

 

Man United’s next fixture is against West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday.

  6. Man U management are not getting it some how. Let them buy all the big boys of this world with a mediocre coach, i doubt if they will win plastic spoon. Ole Gunnar technical ability is questionable. what was his pedrigre before coming to Man U. imagine Paul Schole also pointed some of Ole Gunnar substitution error. presently Man U paraded the richest team in term of talent and skillful players. but no good coach to add values to the team.
