The French defender Raphael Varne is struggling to get back his previous self. As he is so odd this season for Manchester United. Though it is international break but that’s not a small issue. So here we discussed.
Varane is undoubtedly match fit and Jonny Evans is starting over him. it raises the question, Has something happened behind the scenes?
The Current Situation at Old Trafford
Although the Red Devils are in danger of being eliminated. One more loss to Galatasaray in Turkey would guarantee that Manchester United will play in the Europa League next season or not at all in Europe.
The Englishman’s difficult week was made worse by a red card for Marcus Rashford. So far Erik ten Hag’s team appeared to regain control of the match.
But that night at Denmark, a flurry of goals at the late turned the tie back in Copenhagen’s favour. So as we all know again, Reds are perilously close to missing out on another Champions League season.
What Paul Scholes said ?
Speaking to TNT Sports after the game, Paul Scholes questioned United defender Raphael Varane:
“Slightly [surprised by the selection], especially because he brought Varane into the team – Jonny was a free transfer,” Scholes said. “I think whichever centre-back he plays, I think they have to play counter-attacking football because none of them are that quick.”
“Varane was quick and now, is he losing his legs a little bit? They have to rely on that pace a little bit.”
Scholes thinks that he has lost his pace after a subpar performance.
what is going wrong with Raphael Varne ?
It’s been an odd season for United. some of the players they depended on the previous campaign appear to be an outline of their form. While others, like Lisandro Martinez, have been absent due to injuries all the time.
A peculiar case is Varane. Ten Hag made the tactical decision to exclude the Frenchman from the Manchester derby match. And the Dutchman explained already.
Though the situation is currently different. The two barely glanced at one another when the Frenchman was introduced, so clearly not everything is as it seems in the Old Trafford garden.
