The former England worldwide believes United will not be able to compete with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool this season, saying other clubs are laughing at Mourinho's side.

In quotes from his autobiography that have recently resurfaced, the former Manchester United manager did not mince his words when discussing Pogba's agent.

"Paul Pogba? He had a bad agent".

Scholes - who won 11 Premier Leagues, two Champions League and three FA Cups at Old Trafford under Sir Alex Ferguson - laid into Pogba after United's 3-2 defeat at Brighton in the Premier League on Sunday.

One of its greatest players of recent years, Paul Scholes, lamented the "lack of leaders in the team", a not-so-subtle condemnation of Pogba.

After United's 2-1 win over Leicester in their EPL opener, Pogba hinted at a tense relationship with Mourinho, saying: "if you're not happy, you can not give your best".

In a follow-up tweet, Raiola wrote with more than a hint of sarcasm: "Paul Scholes should become sports director and advise [United's executive vice-chairman Ed] Woodward to sell Pogba".

Djokovic leads a rivalry, which dates to 2006, by a thin 23-22 margin with the Serb winning three of their last four meetings. Djokovic had to come from behind in the first and third sets, and helped seal the victory with a break for 5-3 in the third.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Barcelona and La Liga's transfer window doesn't close until the end of the month.

The Red Devils, however, are keen to keep hold of the World Cup victor and record signing, whose relationship with club boss Jose Mourinho has not been the best for the last 12 months.

"I think Zidane would be the ideal candidate", Sharpe told talkSPORT.

The United fans were unsure whether they wanted Mourinho to manage their club given his track record of causing chaos everywhere he goes and now those fears have been realised.

Mourinho was plainly disappointed with Woodward's failure to buy the players, and in the positions, he had asked for at the start of the summer, and his attitude has dragged down the players already at the club.

Mourinho, 55, is somewhat infamous for struggling in his third seasons with clubs.
