Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has issued a scathing critique of Jose Mourinho and said the Portuguese coach is 'embarrassing' the club.
The Red Devils have endured a disappointing start to the season after a dreadful transfer window. They welcome Valencia to Old Trafford tonight looking to bounce back from a 3-1 loss against West Ham but as far as Scholes is concerned the writing is on the wall for their mercurial manager. He told BT Sport that he thought Mourinho would be sacked last weekend.
I'm actually sat here surprised he survived after Saturday, the performance was that bad. We will go on to show clips. Attitude, performance, it was nowhere near. He is coming out in press conferences, he is constantly having a go at players. He is having a go at people above him because he is not getting what he wants. I think his mouth is out of control and I think he is embarrassing the club.

Rio Ferdinand was similarly critical, suggesting the problem stems "from the coach" rather than the players.
