Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, believes Jadon Sancho would have helped the club beat Sevilla in their Europa League clash.
The Red Devils were dumped out of the championship at the quarterfinal stage courtesy of goals from Suso and Luuk de Jong.
Although Bruno Fernandes fired the Premier League outfit ahead just nine minutes into the game from the spot, they were however unable to hold the lead beyond the 26th minute.
The 45-year-old former midfielder admitted that they created chances, but failed to convert those opportunities.
He insisted that if Sancho was playing for the Old Trafford outfit, he would have easily converted those changes without stress.
"They’ve created chances tonight, but if Sancho’s in that team they’d have scored. "If they want to win trophies, they’ve got to start spending the money."
He insisted that Man United must sign quality players if they ever dream of winning titles in the coming seasons.
Scholes already blasted Victor Lindelof for his disappointing display in United's 2-1 defeat to the Spanish League outfit.
He was caught off-guard as Luuk de Jong fired the La Liga side in front for the first time in the game and eventually handed them the ticket to the next round of the competition.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Man United's impressive Europa League campaign has come to a dramatic halt following their 2-1 defeat atnthe hands of Sevilla in Cologne on Sunday night, August 16.
The Red Devils came into the match with the hope of getting the perfect revenge over the La Liga side who was also eliminated from the Champions League back in 2018 under then boss Jose Mourinho.
And the side got things off to a flying start, with Bruno Fernandes scoring the Red Devils' opener inside nine minutes of game play from the penalty spot after Marcus Rashford was brought down in the area.
