Scholes slams two Man Utd stars for not helping team-mates in 6-3 defeat to Man City
Paul Scholes, a former player for Manchester United, has criticized Jadon Sancho and Antony following their 6-3 loss to Manchester City on Sunday.
Scholes made a subtle jab at Sancho and Antony in a post on Instagram.
He posted a picture of Ryan Giggs and David Beckham and wrote: “Anyone remember when wingers used to help their full-backs?”
Scholes appeared to suggest Sancho and Antony did not help United’s full-backs Diogo Dalot and Tyrell Malacia, who were left exposed as City tore the Red Devils apart.
City raced into a 4-0 lead at half-time after two goals each from Erling Haaland and Phil Foden, with a lot of the home side’s attacks coming down the flanks.
Dalot and Malacia had both received a yellow card by the 25th minute.
At United, Beckham and Giggs were renowned for their attacking qualities but also supported Gary Neville and Denis Irwin, respectively, during Scholes’ time at the club.
