Paul Scholes names two players that sum up Man Utd's plight – 'That's not us'

Manchester United’s recent plight can be summed up by the presence of veteran strike pair Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani, Paul Scholes has controversially claimed. Red Devils fans have grown frustrated by the lack of success in recent years – and Scholes has pointed at Ronaldo and Cavani for epitomising the lack of direction at the club. 

“When you bring a manager, he might get this group of players playing really well and all of a sudden it does come a lot easier,” Scholes told BT Sport.  

“But, I still think there’s recruitment – – you think of the two centre-forwards, Cavani and Cristiano, 37 and 34. That’s not Man United centre-forwards is it? Really?”
