Louis van Gaal and Paul Scholes have been involved in a public disagreement recently, with the former player regularly going to the media to criticise the team’s tactics. Van Gaal has suggested that if Scholes has constructive criticism he should voice it to his good friend Ryan Giggs, rather than repeatedly going to the press with his negative opinions.
Scholes has been asked again about his thoughts on United’s football, following the goal he scored in David Beckham’s charity game for UNICEF.
It hasn’t been great for 13 months, but I better not say too much because Louis might be listening! There’s been talk of a philosophy, a process. For me, Manchester United don’t need a philosophy. The fans want to see attacking football and goals – that’s the Manchester United way. But it’s been good to see Jesse Lingard in the team. It’s good to see a young lad come through the ranks and do well. I thought he was United’s best player against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League recently.
