Manchester United: Fans take swipe at Paul Scholes after he compared Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to Jurgen Klopp

Paul Scholes and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have gone down as club legends following their heroics in a Manchester United shirt, with the latter scoring that winning goal against Bayern Munich in the Champions League final back in 1999, completing an historic treble. Supporters, however, have now swiped at Scholes following his odd comparison with another more successful manager. 

The English midfielder also wrote his name into the history books at Old Trafford after helping guide the club to 11 Premier League titles, four FA Cups, three League Cups and two European Cups in the span of 708 overall appearances for the Red Devils, as per Transfermarkt.

However, his latest comments on former teammate Solskjaer have somewhat befuddled some supporters – with the 45-year-old making a Jurgen Klopp comparison to describe his tenure so far.

Speaking to Sky Sports via the MEN [16:48], Scholes explained that Klopp also needed time to work his plan and eventually challenge for titles after a difficult start – with him expecting Solskjaer to potentially do the same thing.

As a result, supporters have fired back on social media, here’s what they had to say.
