Paul Scholes would like to see Jose Mourinho remain as the manager of his former club, Manchester United.
Scholes said on Tuesday that he was ‘surprised’ that Mourinho wasn’t sacked following last weekend’s defeat to West Ham, describing the performance during the 3-1 defeat as embarrassing.
Manchester United followed that up with a lacklustre performance in midweek against Valencia, a game which finished 0-0 at Old Trafford and extended the Red Devils winless run to four matches.
However, speaking to the media yesterday, former United winger Ryan Giggs said that he wanted Mourinho to remain in charge, and despite his comments earlier in the week, Paul Scholes has agreed with his fellow ‘Class of 92’ star:
“Yes I agree. I’m sick of him moaning about what he hasn’t got, when I think he really should be concentrating on what he has got,” he told BBC Radio 5Live.
“I think he’s got some real quality in the squad who are very low in confidence. Jose over the years has been a brilliant coach, his record suggests that, he’s been one of the very best.
“I think now, I’d like to see him stay. Take this – which I think is probably the biggest challenge of his career – and show us what a good coach he is.”
