Paul Scholes believes that Jose Mourinho’s most pressing problem at Manchester United is finding a long-term successor to Michael Carrick.
The 35-year-old midfielder has been a solid performer for Mourinho when called upon and deployed alongside Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera in central midfield for the Red Devils.
Carrick signed a one-year deal with Manchester United in the summer as Mourinho moved quickly to tie the veteran midfielder down to a new contract.
However, it remains to be seen whether Carrick will stay at Manchester United beyond this summer, with his current deal set to expire at the end of the season.
And former Manchester United midfielder Scholes feels that finding a long-term replacement for Carrick is one of Mourinho’s biggest problems at the club.
Asked whether finding a long-term replacement for Carrick is Mourinho’s biggest problem, Scholes told Goal: “Yes.
“There are players out there capable of doing it but that’s up to him in who he sees in that role.”
Manchester United will be hoping to lift the first major trophy of the Jose Mourinho era when they take on Southampton in the EFL Cup final on Sunday afternoon.
