Manchester United legend Paul Scholes reveals that Manchester United must invest in two big game players this summer if they hope to make the difference in crucial clashes.
Jose Mourinho’s men failed to beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday despite playing better for large chunks of the match but ultimately couldn’t win.
Eden Hazard was the man to make the difference from the penalty spot with Phil Jones being the player who was the culprit for the match’s only goal.
United fielded the likes of Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Nemanja Matic but still couldn’t create something special to break down a stubborn Blues’ defence.
Scholes is adamant that despite the quality of players available to Mourinho, he still needs two ‘magical’ players, ones that can make a difference as Hazard did.
The truth is that Pogba and Sanchez were both signed for the sole purpose of providing the ‘X factor’ for the Red Devils but neither could come up with the goods on the day.
The pair have plenty to prove next season with the Frenchman needing to show more consistency while the Chilean needs to prove his worth and adjusting to the club accordingly.
