Man Utd great Scholes: This isn't a great football team

Manchester United great Paul Scholes is unconvinced by the current team.

Scholes was speaking after their Europa League win against Granada.

“I look at Manchester United and I don't think they are a great football team," Scholes told BT Sport.

“But they've got individuals that win you games of football.

“When you look at the top end of the pitch – you look at [Marcus] Rashford, look at [Anthony] Martial, I know Martial is injured of course."

Of his playing days, Scholes added: “I think we had everything.

“We were a great team, probably didn't have many stand-out individuals – we had Cristiano Ronaldo of course and Ryan Giggs – but we played as a team as well.

“I don't think this team is quite knitted as a team, I still think they rely heavily on [Bruno] Fernandes...which you should do when you pay £67million for him, you expect him to score goals."
