Galatasaray’s relentless attacks ran circles around United’s defenders, recovering from deficits twice to seize victory at Old Trafford. This outcome has presented a significant challenge for Erik ten Hag’s team in the Champions League. Scholes expressed profound apprehension regarding Raphael Varane’s performance.

Disappointed. I don’t think Manchester United played that badly, but all the talk before the game was about a lack of goals in the team. We disregarded the defensive side of the game,” Scholes told TNT Sports. “It is not good enough, they were all over the place.

The former United midfielder was particularly concerned about Varane’s form. The World Cup winner was unconvincing at the back and has suffered from niggling injuries throughout his career at Old Trafford. “I worry about Varane a bit… I just think his legs are looking a little bit sluggish and he can’t keep fit. I worry about him,” Scholes added.

Rio Ferdinand was also scathing of United, who conceded soon after scoring each of their goals before Andre Onana played a huge part in their downfall by gifting the ball to Dries Martens, leading to Casemiro giving away a penalty and getting sent off.

“You have got to give Galatasaray credit, when the chances came they punished Manchester United,” said the former Red Devils defender. “One minute we showed potential and something to be positive about. Then all of a sudden I had my head in my hands. There is not organization in this team. It is embarrassing. This is the Champions League, the lack of spatial awareness and lack of danger you are going to get punished and we saw that tonight.”

United have lost six of their 10 matches in all competitions for the first time since 1986, just before Sir Alex Ferguson took charge. They will look to get their dismal season back on track when they host Brentford on Saturday.
