Scholes says Manchester United boss Mourinho is 'embarrassing the club'

  • Crisis at Manchester United deepens after dour goalless stalemate against Valencia at Old Trafford

It was a damning assessment of the current state of affairs at Old Trafford and only serves to heighten the speculation at the club with Jose Mourinho clearly walking on thin ice during his third season with the club.

But they failed to impress as Mourinho's men made it four games without a win.

Why is no one at Manchester United stopping this unedifying spectacle?

"We had probably a couple of the biggest chances to win, but I have accepted the result as a fair result", he said.

Talking on BT Sport, Scholes said: "I am sat here surprised he's here after Saturday".

"You would be getting another reason to criticise me, I think you have had enough".


"The players, they tried, they raised the level of their effort, they raised the level of their intensity".

United's form has seen the Red Devils collect just 10 points from seven fixtures in the Premier League, leaving the team nine points off the pace.

Valencia struggled to create chances as Michy Batshuayi muscled his way around United defenders constantly giving them trouble though they managed to hold out their attacks. If he's still in charge when January arrives, there are four players Mourinho should consider who could solve United's centre-back problem.

"We knew that our attacking players aren't in the best individual form and confidence. We played an important game and got a point, now we have a game against Newcastle and we need to fight".

Mourinho has been under fire for a string of poor results and even worse performances with United suffering their worst start to a league campaign in 29 years. "This is what I ask of my team, my group, my club".
