Paul Scholes has insisted that two of Manchester United’s biggest stars need to be dropped after their win over Real Betis in the Champions League.
The Red Devils secured a 3-2 victory over the Spanish side on Wednesday night, with goals from Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku and Marouane Fellaini.
However, despite the win, Scholes believes that two of United’s biggest stars, Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez, need to be dropped from the team.
Speaking on BT Sport after the game, Scholes said: “I think there’s two players in particular that need to be dropped.
“Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez. They’ve been poor all season and they’ve been poor tonight.
“They’re not doing enough for the team. They’re not creating chances, they’re not scoring goals, they’re not doing anything.
“They’re not working hard enough and they’re not doing enough for the team.”
Scholes’ comments come after a difficult start to the season for United, who have struggled to find any consistency in the Premier League.
The Red Devils currently sit in eighth place in the table, eight points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
Scholes believes that United need to make changes if they are to turn their season around, and that dropping Pogba and Sanchez could be the first step.
He added: “I think they need to make changes. They need to make changes to the team and they need to make changes to the personnel.
“They need to drop Pogba and Sanchez and bring in some fresh faces. They need to bring in some players who are going to work hard and do the job for the team.
“They need to bring in some players who are going to create chances and score goals. That’s what they need to do if they’re going to turn this season around.”
Scholes’ comments have sparked debate among United fans, with some agreeing with his assessment and others believing that Pogba and Sanchez should be given more time to prove themselves.
Whatever the outcome, it is clear that United need to make changes if they are to turn their season around and Scholes’ comments have certainly added fuel to the fire.
