Paul Scholes sends Manchester United a warning over Zinedine Zidane

The Manchester United legend has given his former team something to think about

Paul Scholes has questioned whether Zinedine Zidane really is the right man to replace Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

Mourinho has been under pressure for much of this season what with the Red Devils floundering down in eighth, 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.

Zidane has been mooted as a possible replacement for the Portuguese ever since he stepped down as Real Madrid boss shortly after winning the Champions League for a fourth time with the club.

But Scholes isn’t convinced the Frenchman is the final answer to Manchester United’s problems, and fears he’d struggle in the same way as Mourinho.

“Is Zidane the right man, though?” said Scholes on BT Sport .

“He went in to Real Madrid, who had a group of ready-made winners already.

“This is a totally different job; he would have to rebuild confidence with a squad that isn’t quite performing.

“He went to Real Madrid with so many great players, it was still difficult, but this would be a whole rebuilding job.”
