Mourinho engineered his exit from Manchester united>>scholes
Mourinho was finally shown the matching order by United last month after a slow start to the season and walked away with £15million in compensation.
paul Scholes was Mourinho’s fiercest opponent throughout his two-and-a-half year reign with the pair often in words banter in public.
And paul Scholes’ portfolio of the manager hasn’t changed after he was asked about him by Norwegian TV station TV2.
‘I think he (Mourinho) didn’t want to be the manager ,’ he said. He engineered his move away flawlessly in the end.
‘His press conferences were embarrassing, so naive, it was obvious in the end the players didn’t want to play for him. The right thing happened in the end.’
The former United midfielder said he assumed that Mourinho might be trying to find a way out of Old Trafford when he fell out with club captain Antonio Valencia, who paul played alongside from 2009 to 2013.
paul said: ‘He fell out with Antonio Valencia who is the nicest man in the world. It’s impossible to fall out with Antonio Valencia.
‘That was a big sign for me that something wasn’t quite right.’
And paul also defending his often mocking analysis of Mourinho and his tactics, particularly in the final few months of his reign.
‘I was just being honest about the questions put to me and what I was seeing from the manager,’ he said.
He started complaining very early on in pre-season, saying the lads weren’t good enough, which I didn’t like from the start.’
