SCHOLES AND FERDINAND SLAM MOURINHO
Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand were furious with Jose Mourinho after the FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea. The Manchester United legends were unhappy with the substitutions made by the manager.
“Jesse [Lingard] was getting in spaces, between the midfield and back four. Rashford then had a great chance, made a great run and all of a sudden they were taken off.” said Scholes.
The former England midfielder continued, “Sometimes those two local lads are the easy target, how Sanchez stayed on the pitch with them two creating problems as they were I have no idea.”
“Sanchez, how many times he gave the ball away was scary really, and he’s a top-class player, he’s not really done it for United yet.” added Scholes.
Rio Ferdinand echoed the same thoughts and said, “We (him and Scholes) looked at each other and thought “wow”, that’s a big call there because Sanchez wasn’t playing well or influencing the game.”
“Listen the manager is paid to make big decision, today in terms of substitutes, I don’t think he made the correct ones.” said the former Manchester United defender.
