Scholes: Lingard not good enough Manchester United, Solskjaer has to sell him

Speaking to BT Sport, Paul Scholes explained: "I’m not totally sure [on Lingard]. I do think when he’s playing well he has something to offer.

"Lately he hasn’t been good enough really. Is he a starting XI player if you’re going to go on to win the league and the big trophies at Man United? I’m not sure he is. I know he scored in the last couple of games.

"Tonight was a game where you think this is a chance for Jesse to play 90 minutes, along with Fred.

But when Ole took him off after an hour, I thought this is a sign Ole is probably thinking of moving him on."

The former Manchester United star went on to add: "Look, I might be totally wrong about that, but that is just the feeling I get.

"When you’ve got fringe players and you need to get them games. Tonight was a perfect opportunity for 90 minutes, he scored a goal as well. His confidence might have grown a little.

"I don’t think he was particularly great in the game. But to bring him off after an hour when I don’t think there’s any way in the world he’s going to start in the game on Monday, I think that was a little sign.

"And possibly with Fred as well, maybe the same situation, he might be thinking of offloading the pair of them."

Despite scoring the opening goal for the Red Devils against LASK, Jesse Lingard was taken off in the second-half and so was Fred.

However, both players did well on the field and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed the 27-year-old to succeed at United.
