The Red Devils—currently sitting fifth in the Premier League—required a last-minute penalty from Wayne Rooney to see off Sheffield United in cup action this weekend. Even though they sneaked through the tie, United are simply not improving on the field, with van Gaal’s conservative style seemingly reducing the advantages they ought to have over the lower-league side, rather than exposing the Red Devils’ strengths.
Scholes has been an increasingly vocal critic of the van Gaal regime in recent weeks, and didn’t hold back after the match when speaking to BT Sport, as per the Mirror.
The Red Devils great, who left the club alongside Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, took to the mic to slam LVG and his players, and outline what he’d do differently if he were still a member of the squad.
“You need to make something happen as a footballer at this club,” the ex-midfielder began. “People need digging out sometimes.
“I’d have my head in my hands. I’d be depressed. It would take me two or three days to get over that performance.”
