Former Manchester United man Paul Scholes hailed criticism over the team as they bowed out of the Europa League on a 3-1 aggregate against arch rivals Liverpool.
The Englishman believes the players weren’t brave enough reflecting on the fact that plenty of players don’t take any risk which was seen many times on the pitch during the match.
We could see a lot of players in a position where a shot can be taken but they end up taking the safe decision for example.
Scholes felt the draw was a defeat, here’s what he said:
- “We talk about bravery… not about going through people but having the balls to play.
- To play and to take the ball, receive the ball, pass the ball. Be brave on the ball.
- This United team don’t have that. It’s a mentality thing.
- A draw tonight feels like a defeat. United are sixth in the League and they’re out of the Europa League for a reason.”
