Jose Mourinho is embarrassing Man Utd - Scholes

Adjust Comment Print

They face Valencia and Newcastle at Old Trafford before the worldwide break, which is followed by a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea.

While Manchester City and Liverpool sail into a new week in confident mood, Tottenham are still yet to entirely convince while Manchester United's crisis shows no signs of abating.

"We had probably a couple of the biggest chances to win it but I have accepted the result as a fair result".

"I'm actually slightly surprised he survived after Saturday, the performance was so bad", he told BT Sport. We don't have the technical quality to build from the back.

Mourinho refused to be drawn into a war of words with former United star Paul Scholes, who blasted the Portuguese pre-match in his role as a TV pundit.

Juventus now top group H with six points from two games, United drop to second with four points while Valencia remain third with one point and Young Boys fourth with zero points.

Ernesto Valverde's men have gone an unthinkable three LaLiga games without a win but will bring back Lionel Messi, who was rested for the weekend draw at Athletic Bilbao.

" I am not interested in that, I don't need to know what Paul Scholes said."
"I think his mouth is out of control and he's embarrassing the club".

However, Mourinho was particularly curt when asked to address Scholes' comments following Tuesday's result.

"I think you have had enough, so I prefer just to say when last season we finish second, runners-up in the FA Cup, we won our group in the Champions League, I said it was a fantastic season and I knew why I was saying that".

And Mourinho levelled the blame squarely at the feet of local police for causing unnecessary problems for United in the build-up to the match.
