Boring, boring, Man United is what the fans should have been singing last night at Old Trafford following yet another under-achieving performance from Louis van Gaal’s team.
Not one to keep his opinions to himself, former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes once more had a go at van Gaal for the boring possession based football he is trying to instil into the team following last night’s 0-0 draw at Old Trafford with PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.
The draw now leaves United second in Group B with a difficult game away against Bundesliga side Wolfsburg still to come.
Scholes told BT Sport Europe: “We keep saying defensively they’re sound and I think they are but their forward play just wasn’t good enough tonight.
“You look at these teams across Europe, your Bayern Munich’s, your Barcelona’s it’s the players up front who make the difference.”
The Manchester United legend even suggested that the players looked tired towards the end of the game.
“PSV were the better team in the last 30 minutes. I think they struggled for fitness, United, they looked really tired.”
“I keep saying it’s boring, I know, but he has sorted the defence out. Attacking wise they don’t look a threat, they don’t look good enough, they don’t look like they’re going to go and score goals.
“I think maybe he’s set up his team to be very good defensively because he thinks, maybe, he hasn’t got the quality up front.”
