Manchester United’s former star player Paul Scholes believes that the situation is United is worst and if the team includes Barcelona’s superstar Lionel Messi, then he will also pale out in the team situations right now.
Manchester United are eighth in this season’s premier league table and nothing is going in its favour for now.
The views of Paul Scholes
Talking with ESPN Paul said, “that shouldn’t make any difference but it does. United now feels like Liverpool from years ago, like we’re making all the same mistakes as they did.”
“We were watching Liverpool and City from afar and smirking as they changed managers and players every year, never getting anything right. It feels like we have turned into a Liverpool or a Man City,” he added.
“I feel like people at Liverpool and Man City are looking at us and laughing like we did at them many years ago.”
Paul also said that “I don’t think there’s a lack of quality there. I do think they miss a couple of real class players that other top teams seem to have — a link player between the midfield and the forwards and also a controlling midfield player.”
“It feels like every player who comes into the team struggles. I feel like we could sign Lionel Messi at the moment and he’d struggle in this team,” he continued talking about Messi in this situation.
“I think (Mourinho) still is (a great manager), but you wonder why his side is not performing well,” he concluded his statement.
