Lebouef blasts Fernandes after United lose to Villareal

Frank LeBouef has revealed that he was disappointed and annoyed by Bruno Fernandes' underwhelming performance for Manchester United in the Europa League final against Villareal. The Portuguese star deputized as United captain in the absence of the injured Harry Maguire but was unable to inspire the team to victory which crowned another trophyless season for the Red Devils. The Red Devils appeared to be on course after drawing level through Edinson Cavani but the Yellow Submarines neutralized their threats with ease and triumphed in the ensuing marathon penalty shootout. Fernandes converted his penalty kick to keep the Red Devils on course for the title but was nullified for a very large part of the 120 minutes of action and the former Chelsea star was angered by his constant compl...

Paul Scholes asks Jack Grealish to leave Aston Villa

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has asked Jack Grealish to leave Aston Villa and consider a move to Man United, Man City, or Liverpool. According to Scholes, Grealish has to get out now. Grealish has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and has inspired Aston Villa in their continual push for a place in Europe next season. The 25-year-old has been tipped to move on in the summer and Scholes is of the opinion that he must do so if he intends to win trophies and establish himself at the elite level. When asked if Grealish was a contender for the PFA Player of the Year award for the 2020/21 season in a chat with Optus Sport, Scholes replied: "Don’t get me wrong, I love the player, but if he was doing this at Man United, Liverpoo...

Scholes questions United’s signing of Odion Ighalo

Paul Scholes has questioned Manchester United's acquisition of Odion Ighalo on transfer deadline day. He also added that Sir Alex Ferguson would never have condoned Paul Pogba's antics at Old Trafford. Man United secured a last gasp loan deal for Ighalo from Shanghai Shenhua with Solskjaer desperate to solve the striking crisis at the club as Marcus Rashford continues his recovery on the sidelines. Regardless, Scholes has queried the credibility of Ighalo's record in China and if he possesses the ability to justify his move to Old Trafford. In a chat with Robbie Savage's Premier League Breakfast, Scholes said: “I don’t think he’s a signing for the long term. I think his scoring record in China is very good but is it that credible? I don’t know. “He is an out-and-out center-forward...

Paul Scholes wants Man United to sign Mesut Ozil

Paul Scholes has urged Manchester United to look the way of Mesut Ozil as his exclusion from the Arsenal team continues under Unai Emery. The German playmaker has endured a frustrating start to the 2019/20 footballing campaign as he appears to have been frozen out from the Arsenal team by Unai Emery. The German has played just 2 games for Arsenal this season with only one Premier League game to his belt, and it was the 2 all draw against Watford in September. Regardless, he was still left out of the squad in the Gunners' Europa League clash against Vitoria Guimares at the Emirates on Thursday. Mesut Ozil has been linked with a move to Turkey with Fenerbahce believed to have held talks with Arsenal over a loan move for the playmaker in January. He's also a target for both Inter Milan ...
