Rio Ferdinand And Paul Scholes Absolutely Rip Into Man United After Champions League Defeat

Speaking after Man United's European exit, Scholes ruthlessly pointed fingers at the appointment of Rangnick. 

"How he [Rangnick] was chosen to be manager for this club for six months... I don't know," he said. ​

"The very first thing this club needs to do to get anywhere near winning the league again is getting in a proper coach who works for this team."​

As for Ferdinand, he said the club needs a revamp from the top down and made a bold Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland claim. 

"If you bring in Mbappé and Haaland this summer, Man United aren't winning the league," he said. 

"It doesn't matter who they bring in. It [revamp] needs to be from the top down."

Owen Hargreaves also shared his thoughts on Man United's dire situation, saying the club needs more football people - citing the likes of Scholes and Gary Neville. ​​

Man United, who occupy fifth place in the Premier League, resume their campaign at home to Leicester City on April 2 following the international break.
