The Red Devils' icon thinks the tension between Mourinho and his players was the principle reason for a trophy-less 2018/season.
The former midfielder was also not impressed by his old club's performance in a 1-0 defeat away to Brighton, but doesn't approve of Mourinho's reaction that followed.
He told talkSPORT: "It was not good enough. The players who replaced others did not perform at a good level and, when individuals do that, it is difficult for the team to play well.
"It's a little bit worrying, especially the comment after the Brighton game.
"These young players need an arm around them these days, they need a bit of love at times and they aren't really getting that. Would they improve if they get that? I hope that they would."
"I know they're good players, they're really talented players," Scholes added.
"Those two especially, I just don't want them to be players who leave and turn out to be sensational, because you can easily see that happening."
