Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes is adamant the club’s 2-1 loss to Sevilla in the semi-finals of the Europa League on Sunday, was punishment for their inability to make the most of their chances when they came.
United came so close to winning the game with a fine margin for most of the game, but a combination of ill luck and great goalkeeping from Sevilla’s goalkeeper denied Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.
However, while reacting to the match after the loss, Scholes opined the loss could have been avoided, had United had more clinical players like Jadon Sancho.
In his own words, “If they want to win trophies, they’ve got to start spending the money.
“They’ve created chances tonight but if Sancho’s in that team they’d have scored,” he added.
Scholes comments are a bit of a suprise to some, seeing as the former midfield was never an outspoken supporters of United’s move for the Englishman.
Only a few days ago, Scholes publicly urged United to go for Harry Kane, and abandon their interest in the 20 year old.
