Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has criticized his ex-club that United are in “chaos” even under new coach Ralf Rangnick.
While the 63-year-old is highly regarded, especially in Germany, Scholes doesn’t believe he has what it takes to lead the “greatest club in the world”. “This is something I can’t understand. We should have the best, and we haven’t,” the 47-year-old muttered on the Webby & O’Neill YouTube channel’s podcast.
Instead, the Red Devils should have signed Antonio Conte when he was available. The Italian would have been an “ideal” successor to the fired Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. “Some people say he is not a good fit for Manchester United, but we have seen what he has achieved at Tottenham with a team that is not nearly as good as United,” Scholes enthused.
After leaving Inter Milan in the summer, Conte joined United’s rival Tottenham Hotspur in early November. The Red Devils only said goodbye to Solskjaer three weeks later.
