Paul Scholes is unhappy with the way his friend Wayne Rooney is playing, but he’s less happy with LVG.
Louis van Gaal was in an curiously content mood following Man United’s 0-0 draw against Newcastle United – an attitude that upset Red Devils legend Paul Scholes.
According to the Metro, after Van Gaal went so far as to call his team’s effort against Newcastle “fantastic” despite their third straight week without a score from Wayne Rooney or any other forward, Scholes tore into the Old Trafford boss’s comments.
“He said ‘fantastic’ a few times. I didn’t really see anything fantastic about it at all,” the 40-year-old Scholes said. “You’re at home against Newcastle, you’re expected to win the game. The visiting keeper has one save to make. Fantastic? No, not for me.
“Man City frighten me, the goals you see in that team is incredible. I look at our team and I just don’t see the same goal threat. I don’t see goals from anywhere.
“If Wayne’s (Rooney) not scoring, who is going to score? Chicarito possibly, we know Memphis is capable. But I just don’t think everybody is chipping in to the goal count which is what you need.”
Scholes played 499 league games for the Red Devils from 1993 to 2013, winning 11 Premier League titles under Sir Alex Ferguson and two PFA Team of the Year honors.
Man United have yet to win the Premier League title since Scholes and Ferguson retired after winning it in 2013.
