Paul Scholes has ripped into the current standards of Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United squad and how far behind they are in the Champions League.

Manchester United have now lost three games on the bounce, falling to a 4-3 defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Erik ten Hag‘s squad have lost four of their opening six games across all competitions, and former United player Paul Scholes has admitted that he does not think the club are up to Champions League standards.

“I think they are a cup team,” Scholes told TNT Sports. “They can possibly win the FA Cup, they can possibly win the EFL Cup, but they are not at this level yet.”

Further to this, he said: “There is a weakness to them. There is a soft underbelly and they do seem to collapse a bit when things are going wrong. 

‘They scored three goals and that is good, but I felt Bayern could then turn it on and score another.

“I thought there was a big distance between the teams, in that second half especially. First half I thought they did well but still conceded two goals through a lack of concentration.”

United will be looking to bounce back with a Saturday evening kick-off against Burnley away in the Premier League.
