VIDEO: Manchester United hero Paul Scholes praises Depay and hits out at the recent style of play

He knows a thing or two about playing good football

He knows a thing or two about playing good football.

Manchester United will be looking to maintain their 100% start to the season when Newcastle United arrive at Old Trafford this afternoon but Van Gaal’s men might be described as solid rather than spectacular so far.

It clearly takes time for new players to settle into their new surroundings and to gel with their teammates but Paul Scholes thinks that the arrival of Memphis Depay has been a welcomed boost to Man Utd fans.

The United hero was also critical of the dull, dour and staggered performances that the Old Trafford crowd have been privy to over the last few seasons.

Scholes is a pundit for BT this afternoon and he didn’t hold back in his appraisal of the Moyes reign or the possession based philosophy of LVG.

Take a look.
