‘We’ve suffered a lot’ – Paul Scholes says Manchester United hiring ‘right’ manager is the only way for the club


Paul Scholes feels Manchester United need to find an elite manager to dispel the fear of the players if the club is to regain its former glory after being knocked out of the Champions League.

lost 1-0 at home to Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night.

As the Spaniard celebrates reaching the quarter-finals, questions remain around the direction of the current United squad as the club face a fifth consecutive campaign without a title.

Scholes is part of Alex Ferguson’s winning United team – and feels the current squad will need a leader of the caliber to take them to the level they need.

“We’ve been in a lot of pain and I think there’s still a bit more to go until we get to where we want to be,” Scholes said on BT Sport.

“I keep saying it, and I know there’s talk of people behind the scenes, but until we get the right coach, a top elite coach from a football team another win titles and cause fear in the players (United won’t be back at the top).”

The former England international added: “Two or three, four years, it could be a long time before they challenge for the tournament – and I’ll skip that for you for now.

“You’ve seen with Liverpool and (Manchester City) for a couple of years, you feel they’re coming in and getting better, then suddenly start challenging for the title.

“We haven’t had that in the eight or 10 years since Sir Alex left and there’s no indication it’s even getting any closer to that. It feels like we’re on the right track. opposite.

“The next man may not be the right man, but those behind the scenes have to make sure he’s the right man.

“Maybe they need a manager they’ll be scared of and that’ll scare them off going into the gigs.”

Interim manager Ralf Rangnick will move into an advisory role at the end of the season, who has been appointed to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in midfield while finding a long-term successor.

However, Scholes is not convinced by Germany’s current position.

“I don’t want to keep going to Ralf Rangnick, he seems really good and appears well in interviews, he is very honest, but, how was he chosen to be the manager of the club? this for six months until the end of the season, I’ll never know,” Scholes said.

“The coach is a huge part of that. It’s not a bad group of players. I think if you give this group of players a structure and a way of playing, there’s going to be some real talent. on the team.”

Scholes added: “The first thing this club needs to do, to get close to winning the league again, is get the right coach.

“Find a coach that’s right for the players, give them two or three years to build a squad of players who will challenge.”

Former United defender Rio Ferdinand cannot see a positive end to the current campaign.

“For Man United, the season seems to me to be over – what is left to achieve, really?” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.

“(In the Premier League, United are behind Arsenal if they win the games at hand.

“Tonight really reflected what the season was like – there were moments where they played well, but too often it was Jekyll and Hyde performance. We didn’t see enough quality.”

Of the rebuilding work at Old Trafford, Ferdinand said: “There is still a lot of work to be done.

“If you want to come here, it’s a great project to be a part of, but I think the managers can look at other clubs because there’s less pressure when the spotlight isn’t on. much for them.” ‘We’ve suffered a lot’ – Paul Scholes says Manchester United hiring ‘right’ manager is the only way for the club
