“Maybe he did it because of this shot, I saw his reaction on the bench and I think it frustrates him,” Scholes said of replacing coach Eric Ten Hag after the first half in remarks to BT Sport. “Does he make that dodge for amusement and entertainment? At least he had to pass the ball right after it “.
