Paul Scholes admits confusion with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decision

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes was left baffled by one of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decisions in the wake of the draw with Leicester City.

Unfortunately the legendary Norwegian could do nothing to inspire his players to victory as he oversaw the 2-2 result.

Bruno Fernandes was instrumental in the tie, grabbing a goal and an assist while some dodgy defending saw Leicester equalise twice.

United made several changes to the starting XI that defeated Everton 2-0 and Scholes seemed to hint that may have been part of the problem.

With the festive period in full swing, Solskjaer appears to be trying to rotate his players to keep the freshness in the squad without costing the team points.

Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood and Donny van de Beek were all left on the bench for the crucial clash, with the first two coming on in the second half.

The experienced Uruguayan assisted Bruno to give Manchester United what seemed to be the winner before Axel Tuanzebe‘s unfortunate own goal.

Many fans questioned Solskjaer’s initial line-up but all in all, it wasn’t the main reason for the sour draw.

United had chances to defeat Leicester City and could’ve kept it tighter at the back to keep them at arm’s length but unfortunately neither happened and they had to settle for a point.

Edinson Cavani has made quite an impact since his deadline day arrival at Old Trafford, but how much do you know about our other South American players, past and present? Take our quiz below to find out!
