UEL: He Contributed Nothing – Paul Scholes Blasts Man United Star after 6-2 win Over Roma

  Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has blasted midfielder, Fred, for his part in AS Roma’s second goal during the Red Devils’ UEFA Europa League, UEL, 6-2 win at Old Trafford on Thursday night. Scholes said Fred contributed nothing for Man United against Roma, adding that the Brazilian was ‘left wanting’ in the win over the Italian Serie A side.

The standard is high, both on training and in a game, it is not just about being a nice guy. “We demand maximum effort. I was really proud of how strong we looked.

But the Red Devils came from the break scoring three goals through Fred, Cavani and Mason Greenwood to secure a 3-1 win.

Fred Attacked after Man Utd’s 3-1 Defeat to Leicester City

  Manchester United midfielder, Fred, was the target of racist trolls on social media, following their 3-1 defeat at Leicester City on Sunday. Fred’s error led to Kelechi Iheanacho making it 1-0 for the hosts. The Brazilian was then brushed aside by Youri Tielemans, who made it 2-1 after Mason Greenwood equalized for United. After the game, Fred’s Instagram account was filled with comments racial in nature. The Brazil international is one of several United players to be subjected to abuse in recent weeks. Marcus Rashford posted a statement about comments directed at him in late January, while Anthony Martial and Axel Tuanzebe were also targeted.

Michael Owen has launched a scathing assessment on Fred by arguing that he would never pick him again for Manchester United if it were down to him.
