Scholes, Gerrard, Ferdinand call for United to drop star

Paul Scholes, Steven Gerrard and Rio Ferdinand laid into Alexis Sanchez after yet another terrible performance. Sanchez was non-existent as Manchester United were beaten in the Champions League last-16 by Sevilla. Jose Mourinho completely f***ed it but Sanchez was again anonymous as his struggles to settle at Old Trafford since arriving from Arsenal in January continue. The Chilean has scored two goals in ten games, and lost the ball 42 times against the Spanish side. In the 10 matches played for Manchester United so far, Alexis Sanchez has given away the ball 320 times. On average he gives away the ball 32 times per game Ball giveaway machine Source: (Opta) — Dön (@FreeAgentCF) March 13, 2018 Scholes blasted the 29-year-old after the game. “They keep spending money and yet you hear they are supposedly three or four players away,” Scholes told BT Sport. “There are players in that United squad to play good attacking football. “We found it strange after Saturday. [Rashford] played up the right side to bring Sanchez into his best position. “I think Marcus’ best position is on the left side. [Sanchez] gave the ball away so many times. “Surely your manager has to say, you’ve had 10 games now, the last four or five games he’s not been good. “I think he has to choose his best front three and be brave enough to leave one out. At the minute Sanchez has to be left out.” Fellow pundit Gerrard agreed, describing Sanchez’s performance as “poor”. “If you want to progress you need your big players to perform. None of them turned up for Mourinho tonight,” the former Liverpool midfielder added. “I think it’s to get the best out of Sanchez but, for me, flipping Rashford on the right side would help United no end here.” And Ferdinand stuck the boot in to finish the attack. “Sanchez looks like a shadow of his former self,” he said. “When he was at Arsenal, he was a player everyone looked to for inspiration. Here he looks like a stranger. “When you go to a new team, you don’t lose your talent. Something isn’t going for him.” The post Scholes, Gerrard, Ferdinand call for United to drop star appeared first on Football365....
