What’s the story?
Manchester United‘s season so far has been nothing short of inconsistent. The Red Devils find themselves in 8th place on the Premier League table with 13 points, having won just 4 of their 8 league games so far.
The club seems to have more than its fair share of troubles and in an interview with ESPN (via The Sun), Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, tore into and blasted 3 players in particular – Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba.
In case you didn’t know…
The three players together reportedly earn close to £1 million per week, but have failed to truly shine. Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku arrived last season, but continue to be plagued by inconsistency.
The heart of the matter
Speaking to ESPN, Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, said that the trio isn’t good enough for a team that aspired to win the Premier League title.
First, speaking about Chilean forward, Alexis Sanchez, Scholes criticizingly said:
“I didn’t think he was a player that we needed, especially for that type of money.
Next in Scholes’ firing line was Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku.
“I’m not sure if he works hard enough but he’s still a young man who has done well and scored a lot of goals.
Scholes then targeted Paul Pobga with his incinerating remarks.
“Pogba does some of the best things in games, a great pass or dribble, a great touch or dribble.
“That becomes easy to play against because you know that cockiness will come.
“We never saw that at Juventus, but he was a smaller fish there. Pogba was part of a great team but he’s come to United where he’s got nobody to control him like he had at Juventus.”
