Paul Scholes heaps praise on Kobbie Mainoo after FA Cup display

Manchester United picked up a 2-1 win over Manchester City in the FA Cup final on Saturday, and Paul Scholes has heaped praise on Kobbie Mainoo for his MOTM performance at Wembley.

Kobbie Mainoo has been in phenomenal form for Manchester United since breaking into the first-team scene. Paul Scholes has now said after the FA Cup final, where the 19-year-old was the man of the match, that the talented young midfielder is far better than he was at this age.

Paul Scholes said via Fabrizio Romano, “Don’t waste your time with the comparison between me and Kobbie Mainoo. He is 10 times the player I was at 19. Just love the way he receives the ball, his calmness, his awareness of what’s around him and big goals in big games. He’s special and he’s Red!”

Mainoo has certainly impressed with his performances for Manchester United this season, and it will be interesting to see if he can continue to perform at a high level next season as well. The youngster’s performances have brought him close to earning a bumper new contract.

There is no doubt that he is an important first team player for the Red Devils now. Manchester United needed more quality in the middle of the park, and the emergence of the 19-year-old midfielder could not have been better timed.

However, Manchester United must look to bring in midfield reinforcements at the end of the season and surround Mainoo with more quality and experience. The 19-year-old has the potential to develop into a top class player for the club. But Manchester United will have to handle his development carefully.

Manchester United have had a disappointing season by their standards, and they missed out on Champions League qualification. They will be hoping to bounce back strongly next season, and signing the right players will help them compete at a high level.

Manchester United have a talented squad

There is no doubt that Manchester United have the bones of a very good squad and they have a number of top class talents at their disposal. They will need to surround these players with more experience and quality in the coming weeks to compete with clubs like Manchester City and Arsenal on a regular basis.

Meanwhile, the praise from Paul Scholes will come as a huge confidence booster for Kobbie Mainoo. The 19-year-old will be delighted to see a club icon lavish praise on him. The young midfielder will be looking to work harder in the coming months and improve further.
