Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has slammed the youngster Aaron Wan-Bissaka as useless when he has the ball in his possession.
The England back has lost 12 balls in the team’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday. And was tackled by Phil Foden and Joao Cancelo throughout the game. Which Wan-Bissaka’s offensive ability has always been a question mark since moving to football with the “Red Devils”.
Speaking at the Premier League Productions. Scholes said: “I said before that the 3-5-2 system is not suitable for the players, Wan-Bissaka is useless against. Ball – Great defensive play but useless as a right-back.”
“Three centers today no one who plays well with the ball. Ole has to find a way, having multiple players in the squad is a good thing.”
As for Wan-Bissaka, he has scored two goals and provided 10 assists in 114 games for Manchester United.
‘Sometime some fullbacks just don’t look right throwing a ball, and he doesn’t. It’s a terrible throw, Roma are right onto that, counter-attacking team.’
However, Scholes slammed the award of penalty, which was given after Paul Pogba was deemed to have handled the ball as he slid in to block a cross.
‘What is he (Pogba) supposed to do? He’s sliding to block the ball, the only thing he’s tried to do is get his arm out the way, and it hits him,’ Scholes said.
