Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is unhappy with the contribution Bastian Schweinsteiger has made at Old Trafford since moving in the summer.

Scholes believes there is room for improvement from the German midfielder, who has established himself as a first team player at United.

“You expect more from Schweinsteiger, a player who’s won the World Cup and the Champions League.

“The biggest art as a midfield player is to find space, not in your back four or left-back position, in the centre of the park where it’s most congested, and contribute to your forward players.

“There are too many passes before getting into the final third, which is why the forwards like Wayne Rooney have struggled. They don’t get the service.

“The two central midfielders play 10 yards behind the centre-halves and play easy passes.

“I don’t mind that, getting a bit of space if you’re going to play it forward or hit a long pass, but he takes too many touches and he’s constantly coming back inside.

“Schweinsteiger claps a backpass to the goalkeeper and he plays every week, so the manager must be happy with the way they play.”
