Manchester United are reportedly bemused with their ex-captain following comments made about the club's executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward.

United beat Aston Villa 4-1 that day but those fans that funded it got their wish as Moyes only lasted a further four matches. "They're becoming a laughing stock, and falling behind", the former midfielder wrote for Paddy Power.

On the back of the result Mourinho, who is famed for his third season breakdowns, was installed as the bookies" favourite to "win' the Premier League sack race this season.

Jose Mourinho, has lined up a crisis meeting with his players after a summer of turmoil at the club.

Former United stalwart Scholes - who now works as a pundit - has been one of Pogba's fiercest critics during his second spell at the Premier League club, and said the 25-year-old had a "poor game" and "lacked leadership" after Jose Mourinho's side were beaten 3-2 by Brighton on Sunday (Monday NZT).

And with Manchester United, Barcelona and even Real Madrid seriously interested in a move, the Blues' star could have made a switch.

While United's off-the-field performance has excelled during Woodward's tenure, Neville feels the current strategy at boardroom level is culpable for the current plight on the pitch.

The drama has peaked at Manchester United - that in less than 24 hours after the defeat to Brighton, the utter shambles of the nature of that performance at the Amex Stadium was quickly forgotten because there was already a new circus in town. This follows reports of a clash between Pogba and the "Special One" the week before, where Mourinho allegedly told the World Cup victor to hand in a transfer request if he wanted to leave the club. You would never have seen this going on with Sir Alex Ferguson as manager, especially not playing out in public.
