Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes it would be wrong to expect Zinedine Zidane to emulate his Real Madrid feats at the club

The Frenchman has been linked with United for the past few months as the pressure continues to build on under-fire coach Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese has experienced a difficult third campaign in charge at Old Trafford with United winning just nine of their 21 games in all competitions.

Currently, the Red Devils sit eighth in the Premier League table and are have failed to win their last four league matches.

But Scholes wonders whether it would be wise for United to bring in Zidane as it would be a totally different set-up to what he had at Real.

“Is Zidane the right man, though?” said Scholes on BT Sport, as quoted by MEN.

“He went into Real Madrid, who had a group of ready-made winners already.

“This is a totally different job; he would have to rebuild confidence with a squad that isn’t quite performing.

“He went to Real Madrid with so many great players, it was still difficult, but this would be a whole rebuilding job.”

Zidane won 104 of his 149 matches in charge and collected nine trophies in his two-and-a-half seasons in charge of Real.
