Manchester United legend Paul Scholes labels boss Jose Mourinho ‘embarrassing’ 

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has labelled manager Jose Mourinho an embarrassment - and is surprised the Portuguese was not sacked following Saturday's defeat at West Ham.

United hosted Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday night following a string of indifferent displays which have put Mourinho's position under scrutiny.

Scholes won some 11 Premier League titles as well as the Champions League twice under Sir Alex Ferguson, including the Treble in 1999.

The 43-year-old former England international has been a stern critic of Mourinho, who in turn has hit back at the one-time United stalwart.

On Tuesday night, Scholes used his pundit role during BT Sport's build-up for the Valencia match to launch another tirade at the under-fire United manager.

"I am sat here actually surprised he survived after Saturday, the performance was that bad," Scholes said on BT Sport.

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

"I think his mouth is probably out of control and I think he is embarrassing the club."
