Paul Scholes Slams 'Stupid' Pogba

Paul Scholes has hit out at Paul Pogba, stating the Manchester United midfielder did "stupid things" against West Brom on Sunday.
"I think he loves playing football – he’d be out there all day if he could be," he told BT Sport.

"In my experience of him, he was a great lad. He was a lad who was always willing to learn – it didn’t work out the first time, he went to Juventus and was sensational for two or three years. 

"He’s come over here – if he doesn’t get on with the manager, I don’t know. But that relationship over the past few weeks has looked a little bit frosty.  ‘

"We have seen an amazing player in here, just not at United yet. He performs once in every three or four games, which for a United player if you’re trying to win the league is just not enough. 

"I thought it was a bit disrespectful against his manager the way he played here [against West Brom]. 

"I think he’s wanted to come out and create the Paul Pogba show, which is good, which is what you need. But he’s gone out doing stupid things – they don’t win games. It’s crazy stuff. Bad passing, it’s so casual.  

"As his manager said, players tried to complicate things. He’s not the only one who hasn’t performed as well as he should – I think [Alexis] Sanchez, the great player he was at Arsenal and Barcelona – he’s come in and been disappointing as well."
When asked if Pogba could leave Old Trafford this summer, the Red Devils legend turned TV pundit added: ‘

"I think he could. I don’t know, I don’t speak to anyone at the club but from the outside looking in, it looks as though the relationship isn’t great. 

"And when you see a performance like that on sunday you think he doesn’t care what the manager thinks.  

"I think that’s disrespectful towards the manager and his team-mates."
