Mourinho and Man Utd talks continue

Jose Mourinho will learn from Louis van Gaal's experience and deliver exciting football at Manchester United should he become manager, says club legend Paul Scholes.

Talks to bring Mourinho to Old Trafford have entered a second day.

Van Gaal was sacked on Monday, two days after winning the FA Cup.

"The fans at Man United demand entertaining football and I'm sure Mourinho will come and try and give it," said former midfielder Scholes.

Van Gaal led United to fifth place in the Premier League but was criticised for his lack of attacking football, with the team only scoring 49 league goals this season.

Scholes, who won 11 league titles and two Champions Leagues during a 20-year career at Old Trafford, was among Van Gaal's critics, claiming United were disjointed and played boring football under the 64-year-old.

He also questioned whether the former Netherlands, Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss really understood the "ethos of the club".

"I think Mourinho will have watched that closely and will have seen what happened," Scholes, 41, told BBC Surrey. "He's a top manager, he's proven that before and hopefully he can do that again."
