Pep ‘would hate what he was seeing’ if he was Manchester United boss – Scholes

Paul Scholes says Pep Guardiola “would hate what he was seeing” if he was a Manchester United manager.

Manchester City cantered to the Premier League title last season, leading runners-up United by 19 points.

With Guardiola and Jose Mourinho taking over their respective clubs at the same time, it has led to much discussion as to why the latter is lagging so far behind.

Scholes believes last season was a “disaster” for the Portuguese.

“As a football person, if you’re a coach and you see your team playing – he may be happy,” he told beIN Sports.

“It’s a team who grind out results rather than really impresses you. That’s probably what he is happy with, that’s where he has been at his best over the years.

“If Guardiola was the manager of Manchester United he would hate what he was seeing – and it would be different.

“But, the most important thing to him is results, he will be judged on that.

“Last year was a disappointing year. You don’t have any divine right to win a trophy, I know that, but the way they performed in the league wasn’t at the standard required.

“They got beaten by Sevilla in the Champions League who are a poor team. Yes, they got to the final of the FA Cup, but every year that Manchester United don’t win something is a disaster, and that will carry on.”
