Not too long ago, following United's 3-1 reversal at West Ham, Scholes had said that Mourinho is embarrassing the club and is lucky to be in charge at Old Trafford.
The left-back was 18 when he joined from Southampton in June 2014 for a fee thought to be £30m, then a record for a teenager.
His Old Trafford experience nosedived with Mourinho's appointment two years later, as he was consistently singled out as underperforming.
"What is the first thing that you would try and do?"
"There is a difference between the fearless, who want to be there at any cost, and the ones for whom a little pain can make a difference", Mourinho commented.
Luke Shaw has signed a new long-term contract with Manchester United until the summer of 2023.
"I'd change the manager".
"Luke has to wait for his chance and work better and better, knowing I give nothing for free".
Manchester City are at home, which once again leaves fantasy players with a dilemma - who will Pep Guardiola pick and which of them are likely to fill their boots against Burnley?
"I hate going back and saying "when we played, we did this and we did that", but I look at the current squad of players and I don't think there's a lack of quality there". And he also has a good relationship with the players.
Now is a good time to have Chelsea players in your team.
"Luke, in the first half, every time they went in his corridor the cross was coming and a risky situation was coming, so I was not happy with the performance". He tells people he's the best coach, so he should now prove that.
And according to a report by Zancan, although the club is reluctant to make any immediate decisions over Mourinho's future, a heavy defeat at Stamford Bridge - where United have only won once in the league since 2002 - could spell the end for Mourinho. "It is extraordinary for him".
