Scholes: I hate slagging off Manchester United

Paul Scholes has said that he hates slagging off his former side Manchester United, but says he has to in his role as a pundit when they have played poorly.

During his days as a player, you would hardly ever hear the Ginger Ninja speak out in public, with the former Manchester United star preferring to do his talking with his feet.

However, since deciding to take the surprising step in front of the camera’s, you can’t seemingly shut Scholesy up, and sadly for him, his time as a pundit has coincided with the most barren spell in the clubs modern history, forcing him to be critical of the team he loves:

“I hate slagging United off when I’m on TV but if they’ve played badly you have to.

“But I don’t think I’m that bad.

“I’ve been unfortunate that there have been a few times when I’ve been covering their games they’ve not done very well.”

Scholes was recently criticised by Mino Raiola following his comments about his client Paul Pogba, after the 43-year-old slammed the Frenchman’s performance against Brighton:

“There’s lack of leaders in the team.

“We thought Paul Pogba might be the ideal candidate to be that leader but he wasn’t there tonight. He had another really poor game.

“He’s so inconsistent.”

United face Wolves today with kick-off at 3pm at Old Trafford.
