Paul Scholes has shared his concerns over Manchester United’s current problems, claiming they lack a ruthless streak at the back.
Former Red Devils man thinks the club have not huge problems in going forward and scoring goals. Instead, he has insisted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side should solve their central defensive weaknesses.
“I think that’s what’s stopping them from being a team that can challenge for the league, or possibly the Champions League, challenge for the top trophies, let’s say,” he said.
“Everywhere else, I think their midfield and forward players are really exciting, he’s built a really exciting team that are capable of scoring goals.”
Picking out Victor Lindelof in particular, Scholes added: “I think in the middle of defence, Lindelof especially, they lack authority.
“He can be bullied, sometimes he’s not strong enough. I think both [Lindelof and Harry Maguire] can be very timid. They don’t really command or bully centre-forwards, they don’t really demand from the rest of the team. I think these two positions in particular are massive for teams that are going to win the league.”
