Paul Scholes - Jose Mourinho 'embarrasing' for Manchester United


That was to be the final opening at goal for the Red Devils, as the encounter ended goalless at Old Trafford. "I respect them 100 per cent".

Manchester United are now 10th in the Premier League, nine points adrift of leaders Manchester City and without a clean sheet in their last three outings.

He said: "I am pleased with the effort, I am pleased with the commitment, I am pleased with the improvement. I'm surprised he survived after Saturday [when United lost 3-1 to West Ham], it was that bad, the attitude, the performance", Scholes told BT Sport. "I thought that was a fantastic season and I know the reasons why". They want to win everything, all the time, while bringing youth players through, and playing scintillating football.

Get ready, Manchester United fans, as club legend Paul Scholes is once again pulling out punches on José Mourinho.

Mourinho has endured a hard week, failing to win at home for the fourth match in a row, losing away to West Ham and getting knocked out of the Carabao Cup at the hands of Championship side Derby County.

"We have two matches against Juventus to make points. It will be good for the team if we can beat Newcastle".

"We tried to play but in some crucial positions in the building up phase we don't have players with the technical quality to play out from the back".

"We knew that we wouldn't create 20 chances".

Mourinho has been critical of his players and those above him at the club of late and has been the subject of much criticism from the press, which he hit out at following his side's most recent slip. "This is what I ask of my team, my group, my club".
