Man Utd icon Scholes slaughters 'one trick pony' Antony

Manchester United great Paul Scholes has again slammed Antony after their Europa League win at Omonia Nicosia.

He also took aim at Antony's fellow winger Jadon Sancho.

After watching his old club come from behind to claim a nervy 3-2 victory against the Cypriot minnows thanks to subs Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, the 47-year-old let rip again.

After boss Erik ten Hag admitted his wide-men were “too static", Scholes told BT Sport viewers: “He was right about the wingers being static.

“Sancho never really runs in behind. He needs a fast left-back really or a centre forward to link up with and he hasn't really got that at the moment.

“Antony on the other side as well, he doesn't run in behind.

“He seems to be a bit of a one-trick pony.

“He's always cutting inside and either passing back to the full-back or having a shot.

“You're thinking he needs to develop a little bit. It's still early days for him, we know that."
