Rooney may have saved the day after a 404 minute dry spell for United, but does Paul Scholes still have a point?
Prior to Manchester United’s 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow last night, club legend Paul Scholes voiced his concerns about the direction the team is heading in under Louis van Gaal on BT Sport.
United ended a run of three successive games without scoring, as the under-fire Wayne Rooney scored late on to give United their first goal in over six and a half hours.
Scholes has been an outspoken critic of his old team in recent weeks, slamming their defensive style born from LVG’s ‘philosophy’. He also resents Rooney being made a ‘scapegoat’ for the Red Devils’ goal drought.
Though in claiming that Man City genius Sergio Aguero would struggle to score goals in this United side due to their ‘boring, sideways football’, the pundit has now twisted the knife.
“Does he have a problem with forward players?”, Scholes asked.
“We talk about Rooney getting all the stick, but I don’t think anybody would score goals in this team as a centre forward. I think Sergio Aguero would struggle.”
