PAUL SCHOLES hit out at critics of Manchester United's recruitment following the club's struggles this month.

That has limited the club to the loan signings of Wout Weghorst and Jack Butland, leading some to question United's recruitment.
United's lack of depth was highlighted in the 3-2 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday but Scholes believes the criticism is unfair.
He took to Instagram writing: "Here we go again, managers and every other f***er blaming failure on recruitment…
"I don't see these people complaining when they sign the players, I see nothing but excitement at new players coming through the door.
"Just because you like them as players already it doesn't mean you don't have to improve them as footballers and people.
"PS… just covering my a*** if @salfordcityfc don't have a successful season!! Laters!!"
