PAUL SCHOLES took aim at Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof after Manchester United’s defeat to Galatasaray, labelling the defenders “soft and weak.”
Erik ten Hag’s season went from bad to worse with a shock 3-2 home defeat in the Champions League last night.
United went ahead twice through Rasmus Hojlund before Andre Onana’s howler resulted in a Gala penalty and red card for Casemiro.
Mauro Icardi sent his spot-kick wide with the score already tied at 2-2.
But the husband of Wanda Nara made no mistake moments later when he chipped home to secure a 3-2 win for the Turkish side.
United have now lost six games this season, including both of their Champions League group stage games.

And Red Devils legend Scholes blasted centre-backs Lindelof and Varane for “looking sluggish” throughout the game.
The pair were at fault for several of Gala’s goals thanks to their bad positioning and lack of speed.
And speaking after the final whistle, Scholes questioned whether either man has what it takes to form part of United’s future backline.
He told TNT Sport: “I worry about Varane a bit, he has been one of the very best defenders around, in that same ilk at Real Madrid.

“I just think his legs are looking sluggish, he can’t keep fit and I worry about him.
“I’m really disappointed, I don’t think United played that badly. All the talk before was they couldn’t score goals.
“It’s almost as if we disregarded the defensive side of the game, it wasn’t good enough, they were wide open at times.
“Lindelof and Varane were so soft and weak and we all know what the goalkeeper did.”
