Paul Scholes believes Jose Mourinho “Engineered” his exit from Manchester United perfectly.

Paul Scholes who played 13 seasons for United scoring 91 goals in 383 appearances is convinced that Jose Mourinho planned his sacking perfectly.

Ole Gunner Solskjaer was appointed as interim manager for Manchester United after Jose Mourinho was sacked by the club due to the poor performance of the team and disappointing results. After his sacking, the RedDevils have won six games back to back under the new manager.

Ex-United player Paul Scholes understands that he no longer wanted to be at the club, falling out with the players, speaking negatively about the club management and the players in the press conference was all part of his plan.

“I felt he didn’t want to be there.

Scholes told TV2. 

“He engineered his move away perfectly in the end. His press conferences were embarrassing, so negative, it was obvious in the end the players didn’t want to play for him. The right thing happened in the end.”

“He fell out with Antonio Valencia who is the nicest man in the world. It’s impossible to fall out with Antonio Valencia,” said Scholes.

Jose Mourinho recently spoke about his time at Manchester United with beIN sports.

“We are not any more in the time where the coach by himself is powerful enough to cope and have a relationship of education and sometimes confrontation with players who are not the best professionals’, Mourinho said, ‘the coaches nowadays they need a structure.’

‘A club must have an owner or a president, a CEO or an executive director, a sports director or a football director, and then the manager. This is a structure that can cope with all the problems that modernity is bringing to all of us.

‘So, for me, a club must be very well organised to cope with this kind of situations, where the manager is only the manager and not the man who is trying to keep the discipline or who are trying to educate the players.’

He added: ‘The phrase I kept with me from Sir Alex Ferguson was, ‘the day a player is more important than the club, goodbye’. Not anymore, not anymore.

‘So I think the way to do it is for the players to find a certain balance and the balance has to be created in the relationship between the players and the manager.
