The Old Trafford legend did not hold back when discussing the state of affairs at his former team, with the manager singled out for criticism

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has slammed manager Jose Mourinho, saying the Portuguese is "embarrassing the club."

Following a dismal 3-1 loss at West Ham at the weekend, United are off to their worst start since 1989-90.

Aside from the club's struggles on the field, Mourinho has made plenty of headlines for ongoing feuds with his players and the club's board.

Mourinho's relationship with star midfielder Paul Pogba has deteriorated, with the manager stripping the France international of his vice-captaincy last week.

There have even been suggestions of a full-scale team mutiny, such is the state of affairs at Old Trafford currently. 

Mourinho is fighting for his job, and Scholes has opined that he is surprised the Portuguese even managed to keep his job after the defeat to West Ham.

"I'm actually slightly surprised that he survived after Saturday, the performance was that bad," Scholes said on BT Sport.

"We'll go on to show clips of attitude and performance, it just was nowhere near."

The West Ham defeat capped a trying week for the Red Devils that also saw them draw newly promoted Wolves in the league and fall to Championship side Derby County in the Carabao Cup.

Scholes believes the situation is critical at Old Trafford, as Mourinho continues to fall out with his players and the club's hierarchy.

"He's coming out in press conferences and he's constantly having a go at players, he's having a go at people above him because he's not getting what he wants," the 43-year-old said.

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