    Speaking on BT Sport, Scholes was full of praise for Ibrahimovic but doesn’t […]

    Patrice Evra reveals the one Manchester United player who never received the hairdryer treatment

    Patrice Evra has revealed that former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes was the only player to never receive the famous ‘hairdryer treatment’ from Sir Alex Ferguson.

     

    Mark Hughes coined the term ‘hairdryer’ in the 90s in reference to the changing room rants from the former United boss, and you need to look no further than the infamous butterfly stitches on the eyebrow of David Beckham to know how serious it can get.

    Ferguson ruled with an iron fist when it came to […]

    The 41-year-old believes that Liverpool are favourites to defeat the Red Devils on Monday night due to confusion over the Portuguese’s first team plans.

    Paul Scholes explains what Jose Mourinho’s problem is at Manchester United

    Manchester United have too many midfielders and it is causing confusion for manager Jose Mourinho, says Paul Scholes.

    Paul Pogba must stop trying to play as though he’s Lionel Messi and do what he’s best at, Paul Scholes has advised the Manchester United midfielder.

     

    The world’s most expensive player endured a torrid night in Manchester United’s 1-0 Europa League defeat to Feyenoord.

    Playing in a more advanced role than he has done so far this season, Pogba was constantly dispossessed, passed the ball waywardly and was often out of position.

    Speaking on BT Sport after the match, Scholes said: ‘Tonight wasn’t […]
