Paul Scholes thinks it’s “sad” that fans are accepting the current performances from Manchester United.

The Red Devils lost at home to Juventus 1-0 in a Champions League group match on Tuesday night with Paulo Dybala’s goal the difference between the sides.

Jose Mourinho‘s side currently sit in tenth position in the Premier League table and are nine points off the pace, despite picking up a good point on the road at Chelsea on Saturday.

And Scholes was disappointed to see how far behind the Serie A side United were on Tuesday night.

“They looked a team that have been playing together for some time,” Scholes said of Juve.

“They have brought some new players into it but they were a class above.

“Technically, tactically, they were just a step above Manchester United today.

“The sad thing is there feels like there is a bit of an acceptance to it really.

“Not just from United and from the players but I think from the fans also.

“I think it seems where we’re at at the minute there doesn’t seem to be an improvement in performance over the, what is it, into his (Jose Mourinho’s) third year now.

“You see Juventus, they look like a team who can go on to win the Champions League.

“And United, they’re going to have to improve massively to get anywhere near it.”
