‘If you are playing at Man United you should be capable of doing this’ – Man United legend reveals
Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has criticised Scott McTominay and Fred for not taking the ball on the half turn like Casemiro and Christian Eriksen.
“I don’t remember which game it was but [United] were beaten and I was a little bit hard on Scott and Fred but they had their backs to goal all the time,” Scholes told Gary Neville on The Overlap.
“When they are receiving the ball with their back to goal all the time it is the only way they can go. A midfielder should always receive the ball on the half turn so they can still see their defenders and their forward.
“You saw Casemiro did it two weeks ago and Eriksen does it all the time.
“Small things like that just annoy me because I think if you are playing at Manchester United you should be capable of doing that. You should expect that.”
