Paul Scholes has taken another swipe at his former club by stating that Danny Welbeck should never been allowed to leave.

The former midfielder was full of rage following the Red Devils’ exit from the Europa League thanks to Liverpool and he wasn’t afraid to say it.

“He [Welbeck] would walk into this team, without a shadow of a doubt and he’s just been allowed to go,” Scholes told on BT Sport.

“Every time I watch United I keep thinking of the players that have been allowed to leave the club.

“You’re scratching your head. I think Welbeck is the biggest example of that, he should have never, ever been allowed to leave this club.

“He’s a big example of what Manchester United are, he was here from nine years of age and came right through to the first team. He’s quick, he’s strong, can score a goal, can make a goal, can play left wing, can play right wing.

“Whether that’s come from the manager or beyond I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure it probably did come from the manager. It should never ever have been allowed to happen.”

Since returning from injury, Welbeck has been a revelation and exactly what we needed following our dry spell in front of goal. He’s now scored four goals in 10 appearances after he scored at Goodison Park, which isn’t too bad at all considering that he was sidelined for 10 months.

The striker looks set to finish the season on a high, even if we should have done better in general. Who knows where we would be if he’d been fit sooner?

All we can do is win our remaining games and look to next season. If changes are made in the summer, then so be it and if not, we’ll have to cross that bridge when we come to it.
