Paul Scholes slams David de Gea over ‘criminal’ error vs RB Leipzig


Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes slammed David de Gea for a ‘criminal’ error in the 3-2 defeat by RB Leipzig in the Champions League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side travelled to Germany knowing a point would be enough to seal a spot in the knockout stages of the competition.


However, two early goals left United on the back foot and, they eventually succumbed to defeat, despite a late fightback.


The third Leipzig goal did not cover De Gea in glory, as the Spaniard appeared to turn his back to play to allow Justin Kluivert an easy finish.

“David de Gea here, he bottles it,” Scholes told BT Sport. “He’s scared of getting himself hurt. It should never go across the box like that ever.

“Harry Maguire looks wooden, he’s very stiff. De Gea, as a goalkeeper, come out, make yourself as big as you can – you might get smashed in the face, but he turns his back away.

“He actually makes himself smaller. It’s criminal for such an experienced goalkeeper. It’s criminal.”
