Anthony Martial disappointed many with his performance against Sevilla. The Frenchman was invisible on the field for most of the match, and it was as if he didn't want to fight for his team. United legend Paul Scholes also noticed this.
‘I think Anthony Martial is a talented lad but I think when the going gets tough, when he’s really got to dig in, he doesn’t quite have the heart for it. He didn’t tonight, again."- he said, as quoted by METRO.
Paul Scholes believes that it is difficult to predict the severity of Anthony Martial's injury. It is still unknown how long he will be out of action. Scholes also commented on United's defenders, as well as goalkeeper David De Gea.
‘I don’t know how bad his injury is, he limped off. He could be training tomorrow, he could be out for six months, he’s one of them, you just don’t know. I think in other areas, you look defensively, I think the right-back position is a little bit of a problem for him [Ten Hag].
He’s changing all the time between Wan-Bissaka and Dalot, I don’t think he’s sure on either of them. You have to question the goalkeeper, especially tonight. I think Ten Hag eventually will want to play out from the back.'
Paul Scholes on David De Gea
The former United midfielder has noticed many shortcomings in David De Gea. ‘David de Gea has been a fantastic goalkeeper but he’s not a fantastic footballer. You see the pass he played into Harry Maguire, look, it’s not a bad pass I know, Harry Maguire wanted it, but you have to read the situation, read what’s going on in the stadium, it’s not the place.
Regardless of what the manager wants to play, read the situation, read the atmosphere. That’s an experienced player.’
