Scholes: Man Utd would’ve scored if Sancho was in the team

Paul Scholes thinks Man Utd would’ve taken advantage of their missed chances against Sevilla if Jadon Sancho had been in their starting line-up.

The Red Devils crashed out of Europe as the Spanish side came from a goal down to beat Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men 2-1 in Cologne to reach the Europa League final.

OPINION: We now want jeopardy in our European football…


After the match, Solskjaer hinted that he would bring in reinforcements this summer as Man Utd continue to be linked with a move for Borussia Dortmund winger Sancho.

United missed a number of chances against Sevilla and Scholes reckons the Red Devils would’ve been more clinical with Sancho playing for them last night.

“If they want to win trophies, they’ve got to start spending the money,” Scholes said on BT Sport.

“They’ve created chances tonight but if Sancho’s in that team they’d have scored.”

On the improvements under Solskjaer, Scholes added: “I think Ole’s done really well. From where the club has been from the three or four years previously to when he came in, I think he’s made a huge difference.

“The style of football from February, we’ve looked a different team. For two or three years we didn’t look like we could create a chance, let alone score a goal.

“Since Bruno [Fernandes] came in, he’s made a huge difference to this team. He made a dull team into an exciting team. Good young players are coming in, Brandon Williams has done really well, Mason Greenwood, as we know. That’s what United are all about.”
