Scholes tells Solskjaer: You can't accept current Man Utd form

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer won't accept the club's current performances.

Sunday's draw with Aston Villa leaves United ninth in the table and 22 points behind leaders Liverpool.

"There won't be an acceptance from the fans, Ole, his staff or people at the club," Scholes told Sky Sports News. "They know it's not good enough.

"If Ole's going to build he needs to get results along the way. You can't be dropping points every game and finishing 10th in the league. He needs to show progression in his team.

"When Jurgen Klopp came in at Liverpool, for the first year or two you felt that they were building something. They look like they're going to win the league this year.

"There needs to be some enthusiasm for the fans that they're going to see a team that's going to challenge for the league in a year or two. We haven't seen that at the minute.

"But with three or four transfer windows who knows - hopefully Ole can turn it round."
