The former Red Devil hailed the transfer work of Mourinho in his first season, having bought proven and experienced hands into the dressing room after difficult years under David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal.
Scholes said: The quality of the players he (Mourinho) has brought in, that’s the biggest difference, The previous managers took a risk by playing some players that could have worked but probably didn’t work as well as they should have done.
‘But he brought in ready made players. That was what was needed, ready made players for the Premier League.
‘It wasn’t the right time for Mourinho to take risks.’
Paul Scholes who is also a product of the Manchester united famous academy said the Portuguese was right not to risk relying on youngsters like his predecessors despite United’s tradition of promoting young players from their academy.
Since the arrival of Jose Mourinho at the Old Trafford, more United youngsters have been sent on loan or sold. Although, The Portuguese has expressed his desire to promote some young players from the academy.
