Paul Scholes is more than a bit embarrassed by what Manchester United, the only club he ever represented during his legendary 20-year playing career, has become — and rightfully so.

After watching Man United snatch a late 1-0 victory over League One side Sheffield United at Old Trafford in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday, it appears Scholes has finally reached his boiling point, which is best evidenced in the below quotes and video of the 41-year-old eviscerating Louis Van Gaal‘s version of his beloved club — quotes from the BBC:

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes is in a scathing mood, telling BT Sport he “would be sat with my head between my hands after that performance.”

He adds: “I’ve tried so hard to defend this team, but each week it gets harder. Every time I come to Old Trafford it’s negative football.

“I would be depressed if I had been a part of that performance from Manchester United.”

Well, Paul, tell us how you really feel.

Over the course of 90 minutes, United managed just 11 shots, including a shocking two on target. With 71 percent of the game’s possession, you might have expected more from a Premier League giant going up against a third-division side, but with all the sideways and backwards passes and… oh, right, you’re probably bored of them now, too.

Paul was really, really right, wasn’t he?
