Former Manchester United midfielder Juan Sebastian Veron and Paul Scholes have been criticized for their 'disaster' of a midfield combination.



Scholes was regarded as one of the best midfielders in Europe during his playing career as a former England international.

With the Red Devils, the Englishman won two Champions League trophies, three FA Cups, and 11 Premier League championships.

The former Red Devils legend admitted it was challenging when Sir Alex Ferguson, the team's manager at the time, did not pair him with a defensively minded midfielder.

The Englishman claimed he found it challenging to play alongside Veron and Anderson when Scholes was added to the lineup.

Veron moved to Old Trafford in a £28.1 million move from Lazio in 2001 and lasted just two seasons at the club before he was sold at a significant loss to Chelsea.

When asked to name his favourite midfield partner, Scholes said to former United teammate Gary Neville on The Overlap: “It didn’t really matter to me."

I played with Nicky [Butt], I played with Roy [Keane] and Michael Carrick. I loved playing with all of them. It wasn’t great playing with people who [were] attacking people; I needed someone who played that [defensive] position really well. "

Neville then asked: "Someone like Veron, you mean?"

Scholes replied, “Yeah, I and Veron were a disaster.

“I think me and Anderson did it once." Just, no, it’s not working, is it? Just two lads who don’t care about defending, don’t know the [defensive] position that well.

But it worked better with a Michael or a Roy or a Nicky.

Meanwhile, Manchester United have won their last four matches in the Premier League, with Christian Eriksen, Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes anchoring the midfield.
