Man Utd Great Has A Dig At Mourinho With Pep Jibe

A Manchester United great has seemingly had a dig at Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho, saying Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola would do things a lot differently at Old Trafford if he was in charge.

Mourinho Reveals How Many Signings He Still Wants To Make

The Citizens set the Premier League alight with their attacking style last season, and ended up winning the competition 19 points clear of their city rivals, who finished in second place.

Former England and United midfielder Paul Scholes has now insisted that if Guardiola were managing his former club, one would see different results and also a pattern of play that would excite the fans.

"(Mourinho) doesn't look happy to me," Scholes told beIN SPORTS.

"As a football person, if you are a coach and you see your team playing – he may be happy (with the style of play).

"It is a team who grind out results rather than really impresses you – and that is probably what he is happy with, that is where he has been at his best over the years.

"If Guardiola was the manager of Manchester United, he would hate what he was seeing – and it would be different.

"But the most important thing to (Mourinho) is results, he will be judged on that."

Scholes made 707 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring 149 goals and assisting a further 51 more.
