Paul Scholes on ’embarrassing’ Jose Mourinho: Manchester United legend’s tirade in full

Three points from Old Trafford as Man United drew 0-0 with Valencia on Champions League matchday 2.

The Chilean was also dropped from the matchday squad for Saturday's humiliating 3-1 defeat against West Ham United, where Rashford netted United's only goal as a substitute.

Jose Mourinho says his Manchester United team are lacking "special qualities" but can not fault their commitment.

After finishing second in the Premier League last season, United are now 10th in the table after seven games, already nine points off league leaders Manchester City.

However, it took far longer for the game to come alive after a drab first half that summed up both sides' struggles so far this season.

It was a damning assessment of the current state of affairs at Old Trafford and only serves to heighten the speculation at the club with Jose Mourinho clearly walking on thin ice during his third season with the club.

Musk has said that he expected Tesla to achieve positive cash flow and profitability in the quarter, which ended on Sunday. However, if found guilty, Musk stood to lose a lot more than $20m and could have been ousted as CEO of the company.

"The players tried. They raised the level of their efforts", Mourinho said.

"I was pleased with the improvement from Saturday", the Manchester United manager said.

Mourinho questioned how much some of his players cared about United's poor form on the eve of the match, while his program notes suggested his group lost their dignity at West Ham.

Mourinho has had a public bust-up with Pogba with the two at loggerheads at Old Trafford.

Minor details are important. Against Valencia, he was one of United's most impressive players, though in fairness, there wasn't much competition. His team selection and set up was freaky considering the improved performances in the last two away games. He seemed to be protecting Mourinho, or more likely kissing up to the boss that once left him out in the cold.

"I'm not a fan of Mourinho - if he was made of chocolate he would eat himself".
