Sherwood further urged interim manager, Ralf Rangnick to drop the former Real Madrid defender from the squad
The 28-year-old France International has featured 22 times for this Red Devils this season, having joined the Premier League club from Spanish giants Madrid last summer.
The former Real Madrid man has, just like most Man United players, struggled to find his form and Sherwood believes he has been ‘terrible’ for the Old Trafford outfit.
“It’s about the best partnership with centre-backs. Harry Maguire is better with Victor Lindelof,” the former Premier League manager said on Sky Sports.
“If we talk about Raphael Varane, he’s got off the hook because he’s been terrible. He’s been terrible since coming to the club.
“You’ve got Maguire who wants to defend the halfway line and Varane who wants to defend up there, so they’re not level with each other.
“When Lindelof played the other night [in the 2-0 win over Brighton], United looked better, they looked better with those two.
“It’s about finding the best partnership but then the manager has to be strong and leave out a player who’s won the Champions League and the World Cup.”
