PAUL SCHOLES has hit back at 'belle**' critics who mocked his Europa League final predictions.
The Manchester United legend was ridiculed online and labelled 'arrogant' after his three tips spectacularly backfired.
Speaking on BT Sports, Scholes first said how United should beat Villarreal 'comfortably' before claiming Marcus Rashford would 'destroy' Spurs loanee Juan Foyth.
Foyth would keep Rashford quiet for large periods with the United forward enduring a hugely frustrating night.
With United trailing at half-time, Scholes then said: "I'm still confident.
"They've been in this position a lot of times this season. I think if they're patient, they'll open this team up. They'll get one goal and two or three will come."

With United leaving Gdansk empty handed following David De Gea's penalty miss, supporters were quick to remind Scholes of his wayward shouts.
But the 46-year-old took to social media to fire back.
Alongside a picture of his pre-match quote with a caption 'Welcome to LaLiga Scholesy', Scholes wrote: "'Had some s*** on here today… sitting on the edge of your box for 120 mins is now apparently a tactical masterclass, do me a favour b***ends.'"
Scholes would lay into his former club at the full-time whistle and questioned their winning mentality.
He said: "It's difficult to come out of that game and give them credit, they weren't good tonight.
"Overall there has been progress. But does losing hurt them enough? It's almost become an accepted thing. From Ole's point of view, where is the demands?
"He has made progress, but this club expects to win trophies. If it gets into the next couple of years and there's still nothing he might have a problem. There aren't the demands there where he has to win.
"A few players, it doesn't hurt them. Bruno Fernandes, Edinson Cavani, they won't like it.
"They look like they're proper hurt, the others it can look acceptable, even from the manager. They've become a nice club."
