Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is embarrassing the Premier League giant, according to Paul Scholes, who is surprised the club is standing by the former Chelsea boss.

Mourinho's position at United is coming under increasing scrutiny following the Red Devils' worst start to a league season in 29 years and apparent tensions between the Portuguese and Paul Pogba.

Speaking prior to the Champions League clash against Valencia on Tuesday at Old Trafford, Scholes slammed Mourinho's behaviour.

"I think it's a bad situation. I'm surprised he survived after Saturday [when United lost 3-1 to West Ham], it was that bad, the attitude, the performance," Scholes told BT Sport.

"He's coming out in press conferences constantly having a go at players, having a go at the people above for not getting what he wants.

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

United sits 10th in the Premier League, nine points behind pacesetter Manchester City and Liverpool.
