Paul Scholes has questioned the style of football being played under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, and even suggesting that Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola would “hate” it.
“He(Jose Mourinho) has got every resource available to have a team to win the League,” Scholes told BEIN Sports.
“That’s what the fans expect and that’s what the bosses above him expect.”
“OK United haven’t won the league for Five years, but they are a big club, they are like Barcelona and Real Madrid, therefore you are expected to win every year.”
“Manchester United are expected to win the league, FULL STOP.”
“He doesn’t look happy to me, but he may be happy. It’s a team that grind out results rather than impress you, but that’s probably what he’s happy with. That’s where he’s been at his best over the years.”
“If Guardiola was manager of Manchester United he would hate what he was seeing and it would be different.”
“The most important thing to him [Mourinho], I think, is results, he’ll be judged on that. Last year was a disappointing year, you don’t have any divine right to win a trophy, but the way they performed in the league wasn’t really the standard required.”
“Every year that Manchester United don’t win something it’s a disaster and that will carry on until he tries and wins the league.”
United’s pre-season tour hasn’t got off to the best start, after a goalless draw against San Jose.
