Paul Scholes Gives Honest Verdict On Manchester United's Win Against Brighton

Paul Scholes Gives Honest Verdict On Manchester United's Win Against Brighton

Paul Scholes took to Instagram on Tuesday night to voice his approval of Manchester United's dominant performance against Brighton.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men ran riot at The Amex. Academy product Mason Greenwood opened the scoring with a typically well-placed effort in the 16th minute before the ever-impressive Bruno Fernandes scored a deflected effort to make it 2-0.

Then minutes after the restart, Fernandes volleyed home after a scintillating counter-attack move from Nemanja Matic and Mason Greenwood, sealing a deserved 3-0 victory against Graham Potter's struggling side.

It was a joy to behold from The Reds and even former midfielder Scholes, who has never been one to hold back in his criticism of previous United teams, gave the team a huge amount of credit after the final whistle.

"Well then...I think we have a football team," he wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of Bruno Fernandes celebrating his second goal of the game.

It didn't take long for former United teammate Gary Neville to comment on Scholes' rare praise.

Paul Scholes Doesn’t Agree With Gary Neville Over Best Manchester United Team Pick

published at15 days ago

Scholes is a well-known fan of Fernandes. He recently likened the Portuguese midfielder's impact at Old Trafford to David Silva when he signed for Manchester City in 2010 from Valencia.

"Sometimes it just takes one player to turn a team around and knit a team together," he told Manchester United's official website.

"I don't like talking about City but you think of David Silva at Manchester City - that player [that] links all the play together, and I think we've found him in Fernandes.

"He's totally transformed the team. It's gone from watching a little bit of a dull team, to one player coming in and all of a sudden they look like they're going to create, they look like they're going to score goals every time he's in possession of the ball."
