Former ​Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has stated that he is not sure of whether Victor Lindelof has what it takes to be a centre-back for United in the long term.


The Swede was consistent for the Red Devils last season but seems to have lost the spark following the arrival of Harry Maguire, who has been decent for the Old Trafford outfit following his signing in the summer.


The Manchester outfit played a good match against Partizan in the Europa League but are struggling in the league as they have registered only 13 points from 11 games so far this season.



As a result, there are calls for United to improve their side and Scholes thinks that the Red Devils need a centre-back to partner Maguire while also adding that they should sign creative players for the attack, which has been a position of problem for United.


“We’ve spoken about this all season now, probably the last couple of years, in forward areas," he said, as per ​Goal.


“I think in other areas you’re okay, if Pogba comes back into the midfield with [Scott] McTominay it looks good. I think possibly at centre-half they could need a partner for Maguire, although [Axel] Tuanzebe looks a good option. I’m not sure about Lindelof."


“I think everywhere else it’s looking okay but it’s just them forward areas, them creative areas, where it’s a real struggle.”
