Scholes and Ferdinand slam “sloppy mistakes” with Man Utd trio singled out

Paul Scholes and Rio Ferdinand both slammed a sloppy Manchester United on Tuesday evening.

The sides went into the half-time whistle on level terms, but United soon fell behind after Duvan Zapata notched the Italian side ahead.

Zapata could have grabbed his second of the game when he almost caught out David De Gea with an audacious effort from range.

Cristiano Ronaldo was on a one-man mission to drag United through to the latter stages of the competition when he twice dragged the Red Devils back into the game.

But the two United legends weren't happy with United's performance when giving their opinions in the BT Sport studio.

"Probably not great again, sloppy at times," Scholes fumed at the United defence.

"Bailly gets caught and the keeper could do better but there were a lot of mistakes in that first half.

"Paul Pogba won't be enthralled with his performance and has given the ball away a lot.

"The keeper should save that."

Ferdinand added: "Ole will be in there saying sharpen up and perform now you've got yourself in the game these boys have got them back into the game now the boys at the back need to keep them in the game.

"In midfield, they need to sharpen up don't take your time or liberties.

"Pogba was guilty of that and listen they need to play well here but also to be in line for the Manchester derby."
