Paul Scholes slams United: Everyone’s bored – even Van Gaal!

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes slammed their performance for the FA Cup win over Sheffield United.

United won thanks to a Wayne Rooney penalty in injury-time.

Scholes said the display was ‘depressing’, ‘boring’ and ‘negative’ and said it would have taken him ‘two or three days’ to get over it.

“You need to make something happen as a footballer at this club,” he said in an explosive interview on BT Sport. “People need digging out sometimes.

“I’d have my head in my hands. I’d be depressed. It would take me two or three days to get over that performance.”

“You’ve just seen 90 minutes of boring, defensive football. The players are bored, fans are bored, everyone’s bored.”

“You look across at the bench and Van Gaal looks bored as well.”

“I have tried to defend this team now for the last two or three weeks and it is getting more and more difficult to do.”

“Every time you come to Old Trafford – this is what you see. Negative football.”

“You can talk about 31 shots in the last two games – we only scored two goals. I see square pegs in round holes.”
