Former Manchester United goalkeeper, Peter Schmeichel has hammered manager, Erik ten Hag for his decision to take Kobbie Mainoo off at half-time during the Red Devils’ Premier League 2-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Mainoo helped quell the threat of Nottingham Forest’s midfield during the opening 45 minutes at the City Ground.

But Ten Hag opted to introduce Scott McTominay, who was conspicuous by his absence in the build-up to both of the host’s goals in the second half.

“He makes a substitution I think that has a really big effect on the game,” Schmeichel told Premier League Productions.

“Yes, I said this before I can understand you want McTominay on, but not for the guy you take off.

“The guy you take off, Mainoo, is such a good player and he played alright. He was controlling that part of the pitch very, very well.

“There was no need to make that change when you have other players on the pitch that are doing absolutely nothing for you.”
