Jose Mourinho No miracle needed for Manchester United to finish in top four by Nick Metcalfe Published

Recent reports suggested that Zinedine Zidane is Manchester United's favoured candidate to replace under-fire boss Jose Mourinho, but a Red Devils legend has now explained why he thinks the Frenchman might not be the right man for the job.

And the Portuguese is running out of time to deliver success at United with his position under threat.

Zidane won three Champions League titles and the La Liga crown during his spell in charge of Real Madrid, with the France legend receiving praise for getting the best out of the Galacticos in his squad.

Scholes knows all about what it takes to succeed as a manager at United, having worked under Sir Alex Ferguson for nearly two decades.

Many believe Mourinho will be sacked if he does not qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League, and Zidane has been named as one his potential replacements.

"You have to question the quality of the player", Scholes said on BT Sport .

"It is an easy ball and when you hear Paul Scholes say that. he was a player who could put the ball on a sixpence from anywhere on the pitch, but when you look at that pass it's not a hard ball to play".

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

"It was still hard, but this would be a whole rebuilding job".

The Red Devils have failed to win their last four Premier League fixtures, most recently drawing 2-2 with Arsenal on Wednesday evening.

And having been shown a clip from Saturday's 2-2 draw with Southampton, Scholes was left baffled by the player's apparent struggle to play a pass to team-mate Paul Pogba.
