Paul Scholes believes Manchester United’s inability to claim a Champions League spot can have serious consequences.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to make finishing among the top-four in the Premier League table his priority.

The Red Devils finished 6th last season and failed to earn their place in the Champions League. Manchester United’s stance has seen little improvement as they are still behind after half the season has been played.

Paul Scholes has warned Man United to make sure to get the Champions League’s tickets as the likes of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford would want to play in Europe’s biggest stage one way or the other.

“He [Mbappe] has scored 20 goals in the Champions League already and Marcus is playing in the Europa League,” Football 365 quotes Scholes.

“The sooner they [Man Utd] can get back into the Champions League the better.

“They need to do it because when he and people like Paul Pogba are out of the Champions League, they want to play Champions League football because of the quality that they have,” Scholes added.

“If they are not going to get it here, then you would have to say they will look elsewhere. Hopefully, it will never come to that and I hate even thinking about that.”
