United legend criticizes Red Devils and Ralf Rangnick: “I can’t understand”
Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has criticized his ex-club that United is also in “chaos” under the new coach Ralf Rangnick.
Although the 63-year-old enjoys a good reputation, especially in Germany, Scholes doesn’t believe he has what it takes to lead the “biggest club in the world”.
“It’s something I can’t understand. We should have the best and we don’t have that,” the 47-year-old rumbled on the YouTube channel podcast Webby & O’Neill.
Scholes would have favored Conte as United coach
Rather, the Red Devils should have signed Antonio Conte when he was available. The Italian would have been an ‘ideal’ successor to the sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “Some people say he doesn’t fit in with Manchester United. But we’ve seen what he’s achieved at Tottenham with a squad that’s nowhere near as good as United’s,” enthused Scholes.
After leaving Inter Milan in the summer, Conte joined United’s league rivals Tottenham Hotspur in early November. The Red Devils only parted ways with Solskjaer three weeks later.
