Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has perhaps upset some fans by claiming the club should try to get onto Liverpool’s level.
The two sides have been fierce rivals for decades now and the former central midfielder has praised Jurgen Klopp’s men.
United drew with Liverpool at Anfield but managed to beat them at Old Trafford to go unbeaten against them in the Premier League.
However, Scholes is focussing purely on how Klopp’s side managed to reach the Champions League final while Jose Mourinho‘s men fell against Sevilla months ago.
The Red Devils clearly have some way to go before challenging Europe’s best but supporters are unlikely to take kindly to the pundit’s words.
According to Breaking News, Paul said: “I think they [United] need to worry about the league first – the league’s the most important thing.
“They haven’t really been close for the last five seasons. They need to concentrate on that and then the next step is Champions League.
“They need to play better, there’s no doubt about that, and maybe they need some better players. We’ll have to wait and see but it’s not a given because there are so many top teams in the competition already, you have to be a special team to get to semi-finals and finals.
“Liverpool and Madrid have shown that and United need to get to that level.”
Paul Scholes hasn’t been impressed with the Red Devils all season long and doesn’t appear to be much of a fan of Jose Mourinho‘s.
Though most supporters absolutely love the former academy player, some feel he’s attempting to sabotage any manager who’s at Old Trafford until Ryan Giggs is finally given the job.
The conspiracy is a little bizarre but Scholes and Gary Neville as well have both been a little harsh on United whenever they’re given the opportunity to criticise their former side.
