Manchester United Legend Launches Another Jose Mourinho Rant To Remind Fans How Good It Used To Be
Watching Paul Scholes talk about Manchester United has often been a lot better than actually watching the Red Devils play football this season, and the former United midfielder was in top form ahead of his old club's Champions League clash with Young Boys on Tuesday night.
Scholes has never been one to hold back when it comes to his opinions and he was clear that the starting midfield of Fred, Marouane Fellaini and Nemanja Matic was a concern.
Speaking on BT Sport, Scholes said:
That midfield worries me. How is that midfield going to upon up a side that is going to sit back and counter-attack?
Scholes then left United fans pining for the days of old as he talked about the importance of developing partnerships within a starting XI and how he enjoyed playing with certain Red Devils players during his glory days at Old Trafford. The former England star reeled off the names of Ruud van Nistelrooy, Teddy Sheringham, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole as he recalled the legendary players he plied his trade alongside for Sir Alex Ferguson.
Scholes then blamed the current malaise surrounding United on Jose Mourinho's selection policy...
You need to have partnership that know what other people are going to do.
I think that is why it's so disjointed too - it's a back-four, then it's a back three.
Now there's a front-three, and there's no link whatsoever between them.
The Manchester United legend then turned his attention back to the mediocre midfield at Old Trafford, where Scholes believed that the front-three will have to produce something out of nothing to score.
If [Marcus] Rashford, [Anthony] Martial or [Jesse[ Lingard are going to score tonight, they are going to have to do it themselves.

"It's a back four, it's a back three, it's a front three - there's no link."
