Manchester United legends Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand have blamed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s defenders for some of his stranger tactical decisions.

The legendary Norwegian was criticised for starting with two defensive-minded midfielders in Nemanja Matic and Fred against West Brom at Old Trafford.

For example, Solskjaer often started one defensive player in either Scott McTominay or Nemanja Matic alongside Paul Pogba in the early stages of the season and it produced results such as the ones against Tottenham Hotspur and Crystal Palace.



However, both Scholes and Ferdinand seemed to hint that Solskjaer’s decision was forced upon him by a shaky defence.

There’s no reason why, at Old Trafford against West Brom, one holding midfielder shouldn’t be enough."

Scholes: “The problem is we’ve got defenders who, one-on-one, aren’t very good at defending.

However, at the same time, going with two defensive-minded midfielders might have been brought about by what was a shaky defence at the start of the campaign.
