Mourinho attacks Scholes: The only thing Scholes does is criticize

The player they bought.

Wayne Rooney was given a good reception by United's fans in his second game against his former club, but he conceded possession to allow United to break forward and score the opening goal. We do enough with the gaffer on the training ground two or three days before the game. The Portuguese coach underlined his reputation for picking fights with key figures in the game with further comments aimed at Scholes and other former United players such as Ryan Giggs who have criticised his side.

"Romelu is not a problem, maybe Romelu can play [on Friday]", Mourinho said in his post-match briefing on Monday, as quoted by Sky Sports.

EAMON DUNPHY has hit out at Manchester United's French star Paul Pogba and branded him "a pretty ordinary player". Fixture congestion is that much more of an issue when you're so unwilling to mix things up and give your most exhausted players a much-needed break, despite Anthony Martial (who took his opener superbly) and Marcus Rashford providing extremely attractive - albeit very different - alternative options.

Mourinho added: "It's not Paul's fault that he made much more money than Paul Scholes. It's just the way football is".

"I hope that if one day he became a coach, he could achieve 25 percent of the success that I have had. If he's 25 per cent as successful, he'll be quite happy". But according to manager Jose Mourinho, Lukaku isn't expected to miss more game time.

United won the matchup 2-0 at Goodison Park in Liverpool, England. "He doesn't make comments, he only criticises".

Mourinho's team play Derby County in the third round of the FA Cup on Friday evening at Old Trafford.

Jose Mourinho has suggested Paul Scholes' recent criticism of Manchester United's Paul Pogba could be due to jealousy over the amount of money the France global earns. He could easily have praised his player for his match-winning performance without digging out Scholes for his decision to focus on punditry over a serious tilt at management. That would allow Mourinho to blame Manchester United for his departure.

"I think you have to give credit to all the coaches and managers at these clubs for developing the players and making them the superstars they are", said McClaren. Okay, he is right to defend his player up to a point.
