World News – GB – Rio Ferdinand hits back at Paul Scholes over Anthony Martial excavation


Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand believes Paul Scholes was « very tough » after claiming he was « swindled » by Anthony Martial last season

Scholes hailed the Frenchman towards the end of the previous campaign, saying: « He can beat a man, he’s a man who can score and he has everything you want in a great center-forward »

However, Scholes retracted the remarks barely three games after Manchester United started the season, claiming he was ‘swindled’ by former Monaco

Martial was sent off in the humiliating 6-1 loss to Tottenham and Scholes has consequently taken back his praise for the 24-year-old

« These forwards are exceptionally talented guys We all know that, » Scholes told Stadium Astro. « The problem with United forwards is that none of them are a true center-forward

« Martial almost tricked us into thinking he was part of it at the end of last season because he had scored so many goals and was pretty good He started badly again this season, which makes one think that it is not It is misleading « 

Martial was back in United’s starting XI to face Paris Saint-Germain as he served in game opener of a three-game suspension against Newcastle this weekend

United took the lead in the first half thanks to a Bruno Fernandes penalty, but the hosts equalized when Martial headed for his own net from a corner

However, Rashford was there late in the game to crush a winner and give United all three points in their first group game

Speaking before his own goal, Ferdinand took the opportunity to defend the Frenchman, calling Scholes’ criticism « very harsh »

« I think it was very hard on Scholes’ part, Ferdinand told BT » He scored 23 goals with 9 assists like a no 9 He proved his worth « It’s not a task easy and he went and did it «
