Manchester United were beaten 1-0 by Juventus at Old Trafford on Tuesday with the Italian champions now in control of Group H.
The Italians were indeed the better side in the first half and took a deserved lead through Paulo Dybala.
Manchester United legend Paul Scholes insists United’s performance against Juventus left him embarrassed.
“Juventus have outclassed United in every area of the pitch I think,” Scholes told BT Sport.
“Credit to (Paulo) Dybala he’s finished it well. I give Juventus credit for an away performance against a big club, not a big team as they once were, but they have been so composed.
“There is such a gulf in class. When United have the ball they look nervous. Is (Jose) Mourinho happy with that? Maybe he is. Who knows? When you’re watching that you are a little bit embarrassed.”
Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand described United’s performance against Juventus as men against boys.
“It’s very similar to the last two games going a goal behind,” Rio Ferdinand.
“If I was to try and sum that game up you’d say it was men against boys.
“We asked for a fast start which you’d expect under the lights in the Champions League. It’s been a lethargic first half and the shape and invention of this Juventus team has caused United plenty of problems.”
