Manchester United legendary midfielder, Paul Scholes has criticised German international; Bastian Schweinsteiger for failing to contribute to the Red Devils attack.
Scholes was quoted as saying ‘’ you expect more from Schweinsteiger, a player that has won the World Cup and the UEFA Champions League, the biggest art as a midfield player is to find space-not in your back four or left back position but in the centre of the park where its most congested, and contribute to your forward players.
Scholes believe United style of play is the reason why skipper Wayne Rooney is struggling up front as the team take too many touches before getting into the opposition half.
The former Red Devils believe because of the refusal of the midfielder to join the attack that’s why United look solid at the back. Bastian Schweinsteiger is a box to box energetic midfielder in his days at Bayern Munich but at 31 years of age and the fast pace in the English Premier league; he is not expected to be the same kind of player he was at Bayern Munich.
He has adapted well so far but needs to push further into opposition half, thereby freeing up the strikers and releasing deadly passes for the Red Devils attack to bury.
His positioning in opposition half afforded him the chance to react quickest for United’s winning goal at Vicarage Road and more of such play would be needed by United
