Scholes Pulls Out The Punches On Mourinho For 'Embarrassing' Manchester United

Yet United's worst start to a league campaign in 29 years would be compounded by a disappointing 0-0 draw against a Valencia side with just one LaLiga win to their name this season, leading Mourinho's men to be booed at the final whistle.

"I think you have enough reasons to criticise me".

"The players tried. They raised the level of their efforts".

Before a ball had been kicked against Valencia, Mourinho had been branded "embarrassing" by former United player Paul Scholes.

"I think there are things that are hard for me to say and if I say [them] it's not good for me and even yourself would be getting another reason to criticise me", he told a news conference.

Do you think Mourinho's time at United is coming to an end?

Jose Mourinho has claimed Manchester United's second placed finish was phenomenal, suggesting they over-performed in the last Premier League season.

"We anticipate everything that it could be risky, in the sense of arriving late but we were informed the police refused an escort".

"Our attacking players aren't in their best moments of confidence and individual level", he added.

Fans showed their frustrations after United's fourth game without a win, chanting "attack, attack, attack" as they echoed comments by Paul Pogba in his recent criticism of the team's playing style.

"We tried to play but in some crucial positions in the building up phase we don't have players with the technical quality to play out from the back".

Speaking on BT Sport, the former United midfielder slammed the under-fire manager as "embarrassing" the club.

United are up against Juventus in their next two Champions League games, as they will host the Italian giants on October 23 before the reverse fixture in Turin on Nov 7.
