Paul Scholes makes brutal Jose Mourinho statement after Juventus loss

That is the brutal verdict of Manchester United legend and BT Sport pundit Paul Scholes.

Scholes was talking after United’s 1-0 Champions League Group H defeat to Juventus on Tuesday evening.

A first-half Paulo Dybala goal was enough for the Old Lady to come away with all three points.

But in truth, despite a Paul Pogba effort hitting the post after half time, Juventus were by far the better side and United struggled to trouble goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

Scholes says it is “sad” United fans seem to accept the level their team is playing at.

And he says Juventus are a class above and can win the Champions League this season.

“They looked a team that have been playing together for some time,” Scholes said of the Serie A side.

“They have brought some new players into it but they were a class above.

Technically, tactically, they were just a step above Manchester United today.

“The sad thing is there feels like there is a bit of an acceptance to it really.

“Not just from United and from the players but I think from the fans also.

“I think it seems where we’re at at the minute there doesn’t seem to be an improvement in performance over the, what is it, into his (Jose Mourinho’s) third year now.

You see Juventus, they look like a team who can go on to win the Champions League.

“And United, they’re going to have to improve massively to get anywhere near it.”

United remain second in Group H after Valencia drew 1-1 at Young Boys earlier today.
