Some Manchester United players upset over criticism by former stars

Scholes says Messi would struggle at United and lays into the club in a hard-hitting interview

Scholes: I never saw 'selfish' Sanchez as a Manchester United player

The Chile worldwide has struggled to find his best form since leaving Arsenal to join Jose Mourinho's side in January and he has struggled to hold down a first team spot this season.

Mourinho's side slumped to surprise losses to Brighton and West Ham to raise questions about the squad's commitment and willingness to play under the former Real Madrid boss.

The Portugal worldwide has slammed the Red Devils board, he has lost control of the club's dressing room, he has issues with some of his players and he is also fighting with the press.

Manchester United star Luke Shaw has been rewarded with a new contract, following his impressive start to the 2018-2019 season.

Unsurprisingly, the Red Devils manager hasn't been afraid to reply to Scholes through the British media in the past but the Portuguese coach refused to be drawn on his recent comments.

The report goes on to claim that the players believes pundits "lack the courage" to criticise manager Jose Mourinho and therefore direct their comments towards those on the pitch. I thought he was brilliant, but that Jose has gone.

"I am backing him because I am still going to be his No.1 fan!"

"He was fantastic in the World Cup and I feel he is now getting the recognition he deserves for the fantastic passing ability and non-stop effort he puts in".

"I know he [Sanchez] has qualities and has been a good player but I never saw him as a United player", Scholes told ESPN FC. I hope the situation is retrievable.

Cantona made 185 appearances for Man United, scoring 82 goals and winning four Premier League titles before retiring in 1997. The French midfielder could leave Old Trafford and Barça have been linked several times as his destination.

Manchester United will travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea on Saturday in their next Premier League clash.

So this period really is crucial for Manchester United - if you beat teams around you then it gives you not only three points but huge confidence as well so if they come through this period with a couple of wins against the big teams then they're back in it.
