Paul Scholes questioned Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s ability on throw-ins after his role in Roma’s first goal against Manchester United.

After Bruno Fernandes had given the hosts the lead, Lorenzo Pellegrini equalised from the penalty spot, with the award of the penalty initially coming from a poor Wan-Bissaka throw.

It led the former Manchester United legend to criticise the right back and believes it showed a flaw in Wan-Bissaka’a game.

‘First of all, it’s a terrible throw from Wan-Bissaka,’ Scholes told BT Sport.

‘Sometime some fullbacks just don’t look right throwing a ball, and he doesn’t. It’s a terrible throw, Roma are right onto that, counter-attacking team.’

However, Scholes slammed the award of penalty, which was given after Paul Pogba was deemed to have handled the ball as he slid in to block a cross.

‘What is he (Pogba) supposed to do? He’s sliding to block the ball, the only thing he’s tried to do is get his arm out the way, and it hits him,’ Scholes said.

Paul Pogba gave away a penalty for handball in a decision that many felt was slightly harsh

‘There’s absolutely nothing he can do about that.’

Scholes’ fellow pundit Owen Hargreaves was in full agreement and voiced his opposition to the current rules surrounding handball.

‘The referee didn’t give it. I hate this rule, it’s the worst rule ever,’ Hargreaves said.

‘I don’t think it’s a penalty but obviously the officials who make the rule obviously do. Terrific penalty from Pellegrini, give him credit, fabulous penalty into the corner.’
