Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes that new signings Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have significantly improved the Red Devils squad, the Daily Mail reports.
While United many not be challenging for the Premier League title this season, they have certainly made a lot of improvements and Scholes believes that the likes of Ibrahimovic, Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been crucial to his former side’s turnaround in fortunes.
Asked if ‘Ibrahimovic and Pogba brought some star quality back’ to Old Trafford, Scholes told the Daily Mail: “Definitely. They’re big signings.
“Henrikh Mkhitaryan as well.
“The signings in previous years weren’t good enough.
“(Louis) van Gaal signed players who didn’t have enough character or presence to play at this club.
“We knew what stars Pogba, Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan were.
“They’ve all played at massive clubs and were ready-made special players. It was what was needed.
“It’s no surprise how well Zlatan has done, although he would have struggled in a van Gaal team.”
