Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has faulted Ralf Rangnick’s continual use of Harry Maguire.

The Manchester United skipper has had a season to forget for Manchester United, and has often been on the receiving end of criticism from fans and pundits for the most part of the season.

Paul Scholes believes it’s unfair to Victor Lindelof, who has had a better season to keep being on the bench while Varane struggles on the pitch.

Scholes, while on punditry duty for BT Sport, said: “The manager has shown faith in him to keep playing him considering the form he’s been in.

“For me, the worry is what does this say about Lindelof? Lindelof, when he’s played, has done okay, nice and steady, not many mistakes. It seems everything Harry is doing has turned into an absolute disaster.”

Speaking on that, Rio Ferdinand added: “I think Rangnick is giving him the chance to perform. He is the captain of the football club.

“Captains of football clubs, in general, play. Harry himself will know he’s been struggling for form recently, and when it’s going against you, you get punished for making mistakes time and time again.”
