Paul Scholes says Jose Mourinho cannot complain about Manchester United not spending enough

GETTY Paul Scholes says Jose Mourinho cannot complain about Manchester United not spending enough

United now sit at the second place in the Premier League table, 12 points behind their rivals Manchester City - having played one extra game than City and third-placed Chelsea.

United's top scorer Lukaku, who has netted 15 times this season, had played every minute in the Premier League before his enforced withdrawal against Southampton on Saturday due a clash of heads with Wesley Hoedt.

Mourinho added: "The performance was really good, so maybe I'm lucky this time and the kings of rock 'n" roll who said I wasn't performing last month will say I'm performing'.

Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku will be sidelined for just a single week following his head injury, according to Old Trafford boss Jose Mourinho on Monday.

Now working as a television commentator, Scholes was questioned about the role of Paul Pogba in Manchester United as well as Mourinho.

He's somewhat silenced his haters following his display, with Mourinho leaping to his defence.

Mourinho's bitching about Scholes was a result of the former United maestro observing that Paul Pogba was "just strolling through games" - a fair comment from a man who knows more than most about elite midfield play.

The Class of 92 was made of a number of players but are mostly known for the club legends such as the Neville brothers, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and David Beckham. "Some people think they have to be at the club but that's a problem I can not solve". If we get the basics right, then we can go and play our football.

Speaking ahead of this morning's match against Everton, Pogba told MUTV: "We didn't lose but we have to wake up, bounce back and get back to winning".

Mourinho said: "I don't think he [Scholes] comments". If Paul one day decides to be a manager, I wish that he can be 25 per cent as successful as myself. I prefer to look at him as a phenomenal player that gave so much to the club that I am proud to represent.

"Paul [Pogba] tries to do his best all the time". That's something Jose Mourinho may want to think about after no Romelu Lukaku or Zlatan Ibrahimovic proved no problem for Manchester United as they coasted to a deserved 2-0 victory at Everton. "There are 25 titles, so 25 percent would be about 6 titles, which would be very good", Mourinho concluded.
