He Played Just Like Prime Gattuso. He Showed That There’s Still Hope For Manchester United Midfield. I Have Rumors That He Might Be Leaving But I’ll Make Sure That He Starts Every Match Next Season’: Paul Scholes Praises The Underrated Manchester United Player After The FA Cup Final Performance.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes showered praise on midfielder Sofyan Amrabat following his exceptional performance in the FA Cup final victory over Manchester City.

The Moroccan international was selected to play in the number six position against the Cityzens, getting the nod over Casemiro, who wasn’t fully fit for the final.

Amrabat showcased an impressive display, making 37 touches and completing 93 percent of his passes (25 out of 27). He also won two duels, made two clearances, executed two tackles, and blocked one shot.

Remarkably, the midfielder only lost possession three times, which was highly commendable in such a crucial final.

Shortly after the 2-1 victory, Scholes took to Instagram to praise Amrabat, likening the 27-year-old to a “prime Gattuso” for his performance on the grand stage.

Amrabat joined the Red Devils from Fiorentina on loan last summer amidst significant speculation.

United paid a substantial loan fee of €10 million to secure his services. Initially deployed as a left-back by manager Erik ten Hag, Amrabat later made several appearances in midfield.

Amrabat had not received a fair opportunity to establish himself until this month. After delivering solid performances against Arsenal and Newcastle United, he was rewarded with a starting role in the final.

The 56-cap international capitalized on this opportunity with a splendid showing. The question now arises whether United will consider exercising the €20 million option to buy him at the end of the season.

With Casemiro no longer at his peak, the club should contemplate retaining Amrabat and potentially offloading the Brazilian. However, the new management may have different plans in mind.

Amrabat could still ply his trade in the Premier League next season, with Fulham and Crystal Palace reportedly sending scouts to monitor his recent performances.
