Manchester United legend speaks out about current style of play

Manchester United Football Club were knocked out of the Capital One Cup in abysmal style last night, with Louis van Gaal’s side crashing out to Middlesbrough after putting in a woeful performance before losing on a penalty shootout.

“The style is not something that Sir Alex would have adhered to. I actually think the team is brilliantly coached to defend.” Scholes began.

“It’s a team you wouldn’t want to play against and its probably a team that you wouldn’t want to play in either.”

“There’s a lack of risk & creativity. It seems he doesn’t want players to beat men & score. It’s not a team I’d have enjoyed playing in”

Paul Scholes is right, too. Manchester United’s style of play has been absolutely woeful of late, with the side struggling to score against Middlesbrough – without even looking at all threatening.

At the end of the day football is a results business, and when United are winning the manner in which they do it kind of goes under the radar – but when we lose its highlighted much more.
