William Hill go just 4/6 (1.67) that Mourinho is the first Premier League manager to leave his position with United sitting in 8th place ahead of the trip to Chelsea, who are flying high so far this term.
Mourinho will be hoping that Carrick's experience of winning major honours can help to inspire the current crop to end their decline over the past few seasons.
The 43-year-old continued: "Martial and Rashford, two really talented players, they need to develop their confidence. I don't think his play outside of the box is good enough", Scholes told ESPN. He is just a great manager and I know that he has been having a bit of a tough time in Manchester, but knowing him I think he is going to turn it around.
"This season seems a bit hard now but the season is still long and they still have a lot of competitions to play".
Mourinho will head to his former stomping ground once the worldwide break is over, with a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea when the Premier League campaign resumes.

When asked why Ariana and Pete made such a good match, Frankie said: 'Because he's so chill and he adores her, which is great. The two were spotted leaving 30 Rock at around noon on October 14, just hours before the news of their breakup went public.
"I have to back him to turn things around and it is a hard situation but I am sure that he can do it".
"When you looked at the West Ham game last week, it looked like the biggest sign of players not wanting to play for Jose, but I wouldn't sack him".
The Portuguese manager appears to have got to the stage in where his management of a team begins to crumble and frustrations have started to rise.
Scholes, in a wide-ranging, exclusive interview with ESPN on United's form, was talking about the January signing of Sanchez from Arsenal, and why he, despite his victor against Newcastle earlier this month, has yet to hit the ground running at Old Trafford.
