Scholes could not help but express his disgust at Manchester United performance against Young Boys in the UEFA Champions league on Tuesday night. Maroune Fellaini scored a goal deep into stoppage time to ensure not only that the Red Devils return to winning ways but also to book a space in the knockout stage of the European competition.
The Manchester club have failed to improve on their last season performance which saw them finish 19 point behind their local rivals Manchester City. Jose Mourinho’s men sit currently in 7th position with 14 points separating them from league leaders Manchester City.
Scholes observing the condition of the Manchester club, believes that the Young Boys game was never gonna affect the Portuguese tactician whose main priority is the Premier League.
Scholes: “It’s more the league situation that will cost him his job. Tonight was never going to cost him his job.” #mufc [BT]
Paul Schole might be right in his assertion but Jose Mourinho’s celebration of Fellaini’s winning goal goes a long way to tell that the Portuguese tactician is feeling the heat.
The Advancement to the knockout stages of the European competition means that the club could focus on domestic games as they could draw courage from the results.
United were at some point tipped not to make it the knockout stages of the competition but the Manchester club fought had with back to back victories over Juventus and Young Boys.
