Paul Scholes Blast Man United For Signing Alexis Sanchez (Read What He Said)
Former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Scholes, has hit out at the club, over their motives for buying Alexis Sanchez in January.
Sanchez has struggled since arriving at Old Trafford from Arsenal and has come in for some heavy criticism for his performances.
Scholes, speaking to ESPN, believes the Chilean attacker simply does not fit into the mould of a United player and he is convinced he was only signed to spite Manchester City.
“I know he has qualities and has been a good player but I never saw him as a United player.
“I saw him as a bit selfish, someone who played for himself sometimes. I didn’t think he was a player that we needed, especially for that type of money. How would we be able to get rid of him now when he earns those wages?
“The signing felt like it happened just to stop Man City signing him.
“It feels like every player who comes into the team struggles. I feel like we could sign Lionel Messi at the moment and he’d struggle in this team,” he said.
