Two players tipped to leave Manchester United after LASK victory

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes have tipped Jesse Lingard and Fred to leave Manchester United after the two were hooked off after an hour in the 2-1 win over LASK on Wednesday night.

When quizzed about Lingard’s future, Scholes told BT Sport: “I’m not totally sure. I do think when he’s playing well he has something to offer.

“Lately he hasn’t been good enough really. Is he a starting XI player if you’re going to go on to win the league and the big trophies at Man United? I’m not sure he is. I know he scored in the last couple of games.

“Tonight was a game where you think this is a chance for Jesse to play 90 minutes, along with Fred, and when Ole took him off after an hour, I thought then that this is a sign that Ole is probably thinking of moving him on.

“Look, I might be totally wrong about that, but that is just the feeling I get.

“When you’ve got fringe players and you need to get them games, tonight was a perfect opportunity for 90 minutes, he scored a goal as well, his confidence might have grown a little bit.

“I don’t think he was particularly great in the game but to bring him off after an hour when I don’t think there’s any way in the world he’s going to start in the game on Monday, I think that was a little sign.

“And possibly with Fred as well, maybe the same situation, he might be thinking of offloading the pair of them.”
