Erik ten Hag told Kobbie Mainoo can fix ‘worrying’ two-player problem at Man United



| Last Updated:


Erik ten Hag has been told that Kobbie Mainoo can fix his “worrying” two-player problem at Manchester United as they crash out of the Champions League.

Manchester United suffered a 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening, with Kingsley Coman’s goal sinking Erik ten Hag‘s Reds as they finish at the bottom of Champions League Group A.

United will play no more European football this season as Galatasaray occupied the third-placed spot and will therefore head to the Europa League.

Speaking ahead of the Bayern tie, Paul Scholes admitted that he is worried about the duo of Scott McTominay and Sofyan Amrabat, with the former United man proposing Kobbie Mainoo as the fix.

“Tonight, again, I asked the question about playing Mainoo in midfield alongside Amrabat in centre midfield because I’m really worried about that area of the pitch,” Scholes told TNT Sports.

“They’ve been so open in that area of the pitch. McTominay doesn’t play with discipline. Bruno Fernandes doesn’t play with discipline.

“Now, on the other hand, McTominay gets goals, but he’s playing against Bayern, trying to go toe to toe with them. It’s a dangerous game because Manchester United won’t play against a team like this in England.”

Amrabat, in fact, faired well in the game, playing both in the base of midfield and as an auxiliary central defender for the final ten minutes. McTominay did not have too much influence on a night to forget for the club and fans alike.
