Manchester United legend takes a swipe at Mourinho once again

It seems like this week is just like any other week, with Manchester United legend Paul Scholes having yet another pop at current Red Devils boss, Jose Mourinho.

The 11 time Premier League winner has been one of the Portuguese coaches most vocal critics since he took over at Old Trafford in the summer of 2016.

Scholes is quite clearly not a fan of Mourinho’s pragmatic playing approach and his handling of some of the clubs young players – especially the local lads who he himself spent time coaching of course.

Mourinho has been in pretty sombre mood so far during his clubs pre-season tour of America, and Scholes just couldn’t resist the chance to once again have a pop at the United bosses style of play and unfavourably compare him to Manchester City’s Premier League title winning coach Pep Guardiola.

“(Mourinho) doesn’t look happy to me,” Scholes told beIN Sports.

“As a football person, if you’re a coach and you see your team playing – he may be happy [with the style of play].

“It’s a team who grind out results rather than really impresses you – and that’s probably what he is happy with, that’s where he has been at his best over the years.

“If (Pep) Guardiola was manager of Manchester United he would hate what he was seeing – and it would be different.

“But, the most important thing to him is results, he will be judged on that.”
