Manchester United players 'mock club legends with videos'

Paul Scholes says even Lionel Messi would struggle to shine in the current Manchester United team and that the struggling club are being laughed at by their rivals.

The midfielder has come under intense scrutiny this season with his inconsistent performances contributing to United's rocky start to the season.

Paul Scholes is adamant that he would still love to see Jose Mourinho turnaround Manchester United's ailing fortunes at Old Trafford.

This was a result of Pogba echoing fans' cries for United to play more attacking football following a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford.

Reminiscing his problems at playing out wide and likening it to Mata's situation, Scholes said, "Juan Mata has those type of qualities but the manager plays him wide on the right-hand side and he's never going to have the legs to play that position". He tells people he's the best coach, so he should now prove that.

"I loved that team, especially Pirlo and the way he was so relaxed as he controlled the game. If you don't score you do start getting a bit of stick, and players will start being irritated", nine-cap former Wales worldwide Jones told talkSPORT. How would we be able to get rid of him now when he earns those wages?

"We were watching Liverpool and City from afar and smirking as they changed managers and players every year, never getting anything right". It feels like we have turned into a Liverpool or a Man City. They also think that they are the targets because the pundits do not want to go for Mourinho, and face his wrath.

"We don't feel that pressure coming from outside".

"I'm not sure if he works hard enough but he's still a young man who has done well and scored a lot of goals".

United players believe many ex-stars lack the courage to criticise Mourinho so are taking it out on the players themselves.
