The Red Devils legend has tasked Jose Mourinho to sulk up and start producing result ahead of their crunch visit to the Bridge on Saturday. Mourinho’s Manchester United team visit Stamford Bridge in the early kick-off of the weekend. The Red Devils are seven points below rivals Chelsea, who are currently joint top in the current league standings. The Blues are currently unbeaten in the current league season.

Scholes aware of the threat posed by the West London club believes that the only way the Portuguese could get result against his former employers is to revive his old managerial form which saw him lift him trophies for fun.

Scholes said: “I loved watching his interviews, his cockiness. I thought he was brilliant, but that Jose has gone.

“Now it’s just a moaning Jose, which frustrates you. He’s moaning at his players and what he hasn’t got. But look what he does have. He tells people he’s the best coach, so he should now prove that.

“It’s not like he’s been given nothing [at Man United]. He’s been given fortunes to spend and he’s bought a lot of these players. He’s bought the two centre-halves who don’t look good enough.

“If he doesn’t think they’re good enough, then coach them and make them better.

“It feels like they’ve lost sight of the most important thing at a football club, which is what happens on the pitch.
