Mourinho is embarrassing Manchester United, says Scholes

Jose Mourinho questioned the "technical quality" in his Manchester United team following Tuesday's goalless draw with Valencia at Old Trafford.

Earlier, Mourinho appeared to suggest it would be hard for United to improve upon their achievements of last season, when they finished second in the Premier League to Manchester City but failed to win a trophy.

Mourinho recalled Alexis Sanchez, who hadn't even made the bench for Saturday's defeat, among four changes from the weekend.

The latest of which came at the London Stadium on Saturday, where West Ham ran out 3-1 winners over the Red Devils.

As a symbol of the shambolic state of things at Manchester United these days, the sight of the team bus carrying Jose Mourinho and his players turning up just 45 minutes before kick-off at Old Trafford felt rather fitting.

He told BT Sport : "I told in pre-season that last season was phenomenal".


"He's coming out in press conferences, he's constantly having a go at players, he's having a go at people above him because he's not getting what he wants".

"I think his mouth is probably out of control and I think he is embarrassing the club".

"I think he's embarrassing the club".

None of those attacking highlights could be regarded as chances, though, and perhaps the best opening of the first half fell to Valencia in the 12th minute when David de Gea comfortably collected Goncalo Guedes's strike from inside the box.

Paul Pogba keeps his place in midfield alongside Marouane Fellaini and Nemanja Matic while Romelu Lukaku once again leads the line up front.
