Former Man United defender Rio Ferdinand and midfielder Paul Scholes have blast the club for the Shambolic performance yesterday.

United were defeated 1-0 in front of a capacity Old Trafford crowd and the former England internationals were not impressed.

Paulo Dybala’s goal early in the first half was enough to give the Bianconeri victory with United failing to cause much problem.

Juventus have been tipped by many to lift the trophy, and their performance on night shows they mean business.

Speaking on BT Sport Ferdinand saidthis about United  :

“If you were having to describe this game short and sharp then it’s men against boys, if I’m honest.

“Juventus were far superior all throughout, in every department of the game. From their shape, the way they applied themselves, the intensity, the quality on the ball.

“There was a huge difference between the two sides in terms of quality on the ball, the calmness in possession, the understanding of the game management. They were well deserved winners.”

Scholes was concerned about the gap between both teams as Juventus outclassed the Red Devils from start to finish.

“They [Juventus] looked like a team who have been playing together for some time,” the former midfielder added.

“They have brought some new players into it, but they were a class above technically, tactically. Juventus were a step above Man United.

“The sad thing is there feels like there is a bit of an acceptance to it, not just from United and the players but from the fans also.

“It seems like where they are at the minute, there doesn’t seem to be an improvement in performance over what is his [Mourinho’s] third year now.

“You see Juventus, they look like a team who can go on and win the Champions League. United are going to have to improve massively to get anywhere near.”
