Manchester United legend Patrice Evra has questioned manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to drop Axel Tuanzebe from his starting line-up for Saturday’s Premier League clash against Chelsea.
The 22-year-old produced a superb display during Tuesday’s Champions League win over PSG in his first appearance for the club in ten months.
But the player was dropped to the bench with Maguire reinstated in the starting XI after recovering from a knock.
Former United fullback Evra had this to say about Solskjaer’s decison.
“He’s in charge but I’m a little bit surprised,” Evra told Sky Sports. “I know the back four is the United DNA but the way we concede goals we look more solid with five at the back or three.
“I know people say five at the back but for me it is more like a 3-4-3. Right now I don’t think we have any centre back who is ideal.
“Every game in one vs one apart from Axel Tuanzebe. I think he had a great performance against PSG so that’s why.
“He’s talking about rewarding players, but what about the best player? We’ll see. He’s in charge, we are behind him and we trust him.”
