Mourinho takes aim at Scholes over failed stint as Oldham manager

Jose Mourinho has taken a thinly-veiled dig at Paul Scholes, following the former Manchester United midfielder’s failed stint as Oldham manager.

Scholes took over at his boyhood club in February, but resigned from his position at the League Two club after just 31 days in charge.

Oldham was the first managerial role of Scholes’ career, but the former England international quit after just a month saying he had been misled by the club’s hierarchy.

In his role as a pundit, Scholes was often critical of former Manchester United boss Mourinho’s reign at Old Trafford, and the Portuguese couldn’t resist taking aim at the 44-year-old following his short stint in management.

“But the experience to be there, we have even in England, former top players, amazing in front of the screen, they go to football clubs, and after two months, goodbye, let’s go home because this is not right for us.

“So there are things you have it, or you don’t have it.”
