Paul Scholes believes Jose Mourinho will definitely win the Premier League title with Manchester United during his time at Old Trafford.

The Englishman was vocal with his criticism for Louis van Gaal last season but insists Mourinho is the right man to take the club forward.

He was appointed as the Dutchman’s sucessor in May and has already completed deals for Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba.

Speaking about Man United, Scholes claims they will be tested against the better teams in the league.

“They’ve been impressive,” he said.

“United may not have played against great teams yet and Hull isn’t a big test either, we’ll see when they come against Man City.

“The club have taken risk element out of it they brought Mourinho in who guarantees trophies and he will definitely win the league for Manchester United.

Scholes was one of van Gaal’s most vocal critics last season so it’s brilliant to see him get behind Mourinho and his new side.

His arrival at the club this summer along with his new signings have transformed the side from contenders into favourites to lift the trophy.

The Portuguese boss is cooking something special at Man United and it’s an exciting time for supporters after they suffering disappointing tenures under van Gaal and David Moyes.
