Scholes says he "can’t watch" Manchester United’s Champions League games

Paul Scholes says Manchester United’s performances are making it tough for him to watch his former club play in the Champions League.

United played out a goalless draw at home to Valencia on Tuesday to make it four games without a victory, while they haven’t won a home game in any competition since the victory over Leicester at Old Trafford in their first game of the campaign.

Jose Mourinho has been slammed for the tactics he’s employed during those matches, with his side seen as static and boring.

And Scholes would seem to agree with that analysis.

"We talk about them being dull and we talk about the first 10 games (of this season), but you go into last season as well," he said.

"It’s been dull to watch. I don’t know how many times we’ve sat in the studio watching games and we end up watching the other screens looking at the other games to find some goals. That’s just the way it is.

"But they’re still in a strong position in the group, they’ll still go through the group. But hopefully that Juventus game (the next one in the group) will liven it up a bit."

Before the match, Scholes laid into Mourinho for the defeat at West Ham on Saturday.

"I’m surprised he survived after Saturday," he said.

"The performance was that bad. The attitude and performance were nowhere near.

"He’s coming out in press conference, he is constantly having a go at players, he’s having a go at people above him because he is not getting what he wants.

"I think his mouth is probably out of control and I think he’s embarrassing the club."
