Arsenal shareholder Piers Morgan sides with Man United legend Paul Scholes
Piers Morgan takes Paul Scholes' side following the former midfielder's recent criticism of Manchester United
Piers Morgan has waded into the debate surrounding Paul Scholes’ recent criticism of Manchester United by taking the side of the former England international.
Scholes hit the headlines on Thursday after criticising Louis van Gaal’s side for a lack of creativity following their League Cup exit at the hands of Middlesbrough on Wednesday night.
Red Devils boss Van Gaal hit back at Scholes during his pre-match news briefing on Friday morning, insisting that he is paying no attention to the former midfielder’s comments.
Now, celebrity fan and Arsenal shareholder Morgan has come out in support for Scholes, saying that the midfielder’s refusal to tolerate mediocrity was one of the key ingredients of his successful playing career.
Hope Paul Scholes is not turning into another Piers Morgan…criticising his team only when they lose and keeps mum when they win

Or just refusing to tolerate mediocrity, which is why he won so many trophies. https://t.co/r1Lm54FD6d
