Scholes said he was surprised Mourinho was not sacked after United's defeat to West Ham at the weekend.
Manchester United will be desperate to get their season back on track following a turbulent week when they take on Valencia in the group stages of the Champions League this evening.
United's next two Champions League games are against Juventus at home on October 23 and in Turin on November 7. "I was not pleased with the result, but it is not a bad result".
"I think there are things that are hard for me to say and I think you have enough reasons to criticise me", Mourinho told a press conference.

Under the new agreement, three-quarters of a car's parts must originate from North America in order to be exempt from duties. Trump had described Nafta as a bad deal for Americans and threatened to eliminate it as part of his "America First" agenda.
Eric Bailly in particular appeared to support his argument, though in fairness his partnership with Chris Smalling was the sixth different partnership United have fielded in central defence in 10 games this season.
"Freedom of speech", he said.
Mourinho questioned how much some of his players cared about United's poor form on the eve of the match, while his programme notes suggested his group lost their dignity at West Ham.
"I don't need to know what he [Scholes] said", said Mourinho.
It was an embarrassing day for any Manchester United fan. "He said what he wants to say, I'm not interested, honestly, I'm not interested". "Uefa were nice, the referee was nice to allow us to start the game five minutes later because we at least needed half hour to be prepared but it was not a problem with the club organisation". We were the team that tried more, that had probably a couple of big chances to win, but I accept the result as a fair result. "It will be good for the team if we can beat Newcastle".
