Ex-Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes has come out to say that he wasn’t impressed with MUFC vs Atalanta. He recently revealed that the team’s first-half performance actually stopped him from watching the second.
According to him, he understands the excitement from fans after the comeback but he doesn’t think the team will get away with such performance vs an EPL team.
He added that MUFC shouldn’t dare play Liverpool like that in the next game, else they’ll get thrashed after 90 minutes.
His words, “I get all the excitement but that first half I just didn’t enjoy it and I think that first half put me off the second,”
“I think if they were playing a better team they’d be out of sight. That first half was worrying. It looked anything but a team, it lacked unity – that was a worrying sign.”
“Can they play Liverpool like that? Never in a million years. Can you play Manchester City like that? Can you play a top Champions League team like that? I don’t want to sound like a party pooper but that first half was a major worry for me.”
Ole added, “I thought we played well first half too. Two chances, two goals. It has to stop if we are to survive,”
“We have a habit of doing this at this club. I thought we played well and they scored a goal out of nothing and then another set-piece. But they never stopped believing and kept going.”
“Don’t disrespect the players. They play for Manchester United and they know they are the luckiest men in the world. Tonight they are the luckiest men in the world because they get to play for Manchester United. That is what so many millions of boys and girls want to do.”
