I Expect Mourinho To Criticize Me Now That I’m A Manager Too – Scholes
Paul Scholes has said he expects to be criticized by Jose Mourinho after he was named Oldham manager.
As we all know, the former Manchester United manager was extremely critical of Jose and his team when he was still in charge of the Old Trafford club.
His words, “I think he will be watching results,” Scholes said when asked about Mourinho, who was given his own TV show on Monday. “Whether he will be watching the games I am not too sure.
“That is part of the thing that bugged me a little bit. I wanted to get into it [management] anyway but I have left myself wide open. I have been quite critical.
“I don’t think we will get many pundits watching — [although] if we are losing games I am sure people will be popping up — [they] can say what they want.
“I have never really understood why players and managers take notice of what pundits say anyway. They are just giving an opinion on the game and get paid for doing so.
“If anyone wants to have a dig at me, I won’t be taking any notice. The only person I answer to is the owner.”
Scholes was named Oldham manager yesterday.
