Paul Scholes blasts Wan-Bissaka as "useless on the ball" after Man City defeat

Paul Scholes has slammed Manchester United's Aaron Wan-Bissaka for being "useless on the ball" following Manchester City's 2-0 win at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted for a 3-5-2 formation, using Wan-Bissaka as a right-wing-back, just as he did against Atalanta last week in the Champions League.

But the 23-year-old struggled to get to grips with the demands of the role, and looked out of his depth against City's Joao Cancelo.

After the game, Scholes insisted the formation Solskjaer chose didn't suit the players he had at his disposal, citing Wan-Bissaka's lack of ability on the ball as evidence.

"I said before the 3-5-2 doesn't suit the players in the team," the United legend told Premier League Productions.

"Wan-Bissaka is useless on the ball – brilliant defender but useless on the ball at right-back.

"Three centre-halves today, none of them that good on the ball. Ole has got to find a way… There's a squad of players there that could be okay."

Wan-Bissaka arrived at Old Trafford in 2019 from Crystal Palace in a £50m deal.

The hard-tackling defender has been a mainstay in the United side ever since, but doubts have been raised about his ability going forward.

Wan-Bissaka has struggled to impress England manager Gareth Southgate, especially with the likes of Kyle Walker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Reece James and Kieran Trippier ahead of him in the international pecking order, and is yet to earn a cap for his country.

United slipped to sixth in the Premier League after recording their fourth loss of the campaign, as pressure continues to mount on Solskjaer.
