"Blame is a strong word, I don't like to use it", the two-time Premier League victor said.
This weekend, Wolves welcome to Molineux Manchester City.
Not only that but critics will say that their second-place finish was something of a false position.
Scholes' said: "I hope that is lost in translation, there is no defence for that comment, there is no defence for it".
Cities strongest challenge this season could come from last years Champions League runners up Liverpool who with the addition of the 4 exciting signings Alisson, Shaqiri, Fabinho and Keita, have spent over 250 million this calendar year so far!
However, it is an objective that looks like it could be one that is unfulfilled.
Manchester City dropped their first points at Wolverhampton with a 1-1 draw. The former Chelsea boss expressed his disappointment having failed to land his summer targets.
Wolves were one of only two teams that Manchester City faced in the 2017-18 season without scoring, drawing 0-0 in October 2017 in a League Cup tie (the other were Wigan Athletic).
United have also found themselves in the media spotlight regarding Pogba, with the 25-year-old's on-field performances, relationship with Mourinho and long-term future at Old Trafford coming under scrutiny.
"Pogba was playing the ball out of play, overhitting passes and getting caught in possession".
The very bad display at Brighton of Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof - two Mourinho signings - did little to quell the debate, leading former captain Gary Neville to say Woodward should have backed the manager's judgement.
This most intriguing match among the English Premier League fixtures this weekend, as always will be aired live on Supersport in an exact channel that can be obtained from their website.The match will also be shown live on Sky Sports Premier League Channel.
Pogba captained the Red Devils as they went down 3-2 on the south coast, with Scholes questioning the World Cup winner's leadership capabilities following an average performance.
It's hard to argue with the fact that Mourinho is one of the greatest football managers of all time. Should Man United as a club get their house in order? Not only that but will the risk that comes with his appointment be worth the reward. The midfielder could still be sold to a leading European club this month - the transfer window remains open in Spain, for example - and Barcelona have been linked with a move for Pogba.
This means that the only elite routes left for him are either PSG, Bayern Munich or Juventus.
"The best foreign player to ever play in the Premier League".
Paul Ince believes former club Manchester United are a "total mess" and becoming a "laughing stock".
Centre half on edge of the box, picked up touch tight by?
Imagine somewhere such as China being the home for Mourinho in a couple of years, once he has called time on the weekly cut and thrust of league football.
