Paul Scholes names two players that shouldn’t be at Man Utd

Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has expressed disapproval of Casemiro and Christian Eriksen being in the English Premier League team.

He criticised them following their lackluster performance in the Red Devils’ 4-0 defeat against Crystal Palace on Monday. Scholes suggested that the duo should not be at Man United.

Crystal Palace dominated with two goals in each half, including strikes from Michael Olise and Jean-Philippe Mateta.

According to HITC, Scholes particularly highlighted Casemiro’s struggles against Olise and questioned Eriksen’s suitability for a club of United’s caliber, citing a perceived lack of physicality in midfield.

The former England midfielder said; “You think of the likes of Casemiro, he’s tough to have a go at it. What a player he has been over the years, but that was tough to watch, he was on his backside most of the time.

“People like Christian Eriksen as well, the physicality in the middle of the pitch has gone. They shouldn’t be at a club of this stature, really.”

Manchester United manager, Erik ten Hag recently hit back at comments made by Jose Mourinho that he never had the same level of support the Dutchman currently enjoys at the club.

Mourinho suggested that Ten Hag has been given more backing in the transfer market than he had during his 2½ years at Old Trafford.

However, Ten Hag said in an interview with ESPN Brasil, said that Mourinho is the only manager in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era to “get the players they wanted.”

He said; “Apart from Mourinho, the manager didn’t get the players they wanted, and that is what you need. I am confident we will achieve our goals, but it is a tough competition.

It is not a two-horse race anymore. There are seven, eight [teams in the Premier League] who all go for the title, who all have very good squads. So if you want to go to the title, you have to construct that squad.”

The 54-year-old tactician is facing an uncertain future at United following a disappointing second season in charge. He has a year left on his contract, but he has been given no formal guarantees by new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe that he will continue as manager beyond the summer.

Ten Hag has tried to bring in the likes of Frenkie de Jong and Harry Kane in the past but said the club’s decision to bring in younger players such as Rasmus Højlund means that he should be afforded patience to get things right.

He said; “You need outstanding players. Otherwise, you are in a process and you have to be patient. That is where we are now. We went for players who have high potentials, and we have to develop them, as individuals and as a team. But you need patience with the process.”
