“You’re useless” – Scholes blasts Man Utd star and slams Solskjaer after 2-0 defeat to Man City

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has branded Aaron Wan-Bissaka as a useless player on the ball following Manchester United’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday.

Scholes also criticised Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, over his tactics against Man City, adding that the Norwegian needs to start showing conviction if he wants to save his job at Old Trafford.

“The conviction has to come from the coach of the way you are going to play football,” Scholes told Premier League Productions.

“Ole has been here three years now and we have come here today not really knowing what he’s going to do.

“That makes the recruitment almost impossible because you are not buying players for a system. Look at Pep [Guardiola], he will buy players for a system. He brought [Jack] Grealish this year for his system, he brought [Riyad] Mahrez in for his system. Jurgen Klopp brings Diogo Jota in as another forward for his system. We’re bringing players in and trying to shoehorn them into positions.

“Three years down the line you can see the evidence on the pitch, today and two weeks ago we’re a long way off. I do think we have got a group of good players, but Ole has to convince everyone that he’s the right man to find the right formation for this team.

“Stop messing about changing it for everyone else. He’s got to now have a conviction. Whatever it’s, I don’t care, just have that conviction. I said before that the 3-5-2 doesn’t suit the players in the team. Wan Bissaka is useless on the ball, brilliant defender but useless on the ball at right-back.

“Three centre-halves today, none of them that good on the ball. Ole has got to find a way and it is a job, by the way. There is a squad of players there that could be OK.”

    Man U needs confidence and experienced coach. Ole is clueless, confused and lack strategies. We have quality players that can deliver but Ole formation rendered them useless…. Watch all these player’s performance on international duties…. that’s just tangible prove that something is wrong with Ole formation. Ole out… sack him now
