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

One of Mourinho's fiercest critics has proved to be Paul Scholes, who said on BT Sport before the game that Mourinho was embarrassing the club and was lucky not to have been sacked already.

It was United's fourth successive winless outing following a 3-1 Premier League defeat by West Ham on Saturday which came on the back of a 1-1 home draw with Wolverhampton and League Cup elimination by second-tier Derby County.

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

"I think his mouth is out of control, and I think he's embarrassing the club".

"I am not interested in that, I don't need to know what Paul Scholes said", he responded.

After executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward denied Mourinho the chance to sign a centre-back over the summer, the United boss has continued to criticise his lack of depth at the back in nearly every press conference.

Scholes was not the only one criticising Mourinho.
