Scholes lays into Pogba again

Paul Scholes has once again given his opinion on the current goings-on at Manchester United, with Paul Pogba the latest subject of his attentions.

Pogba has divided opinion since he made his £89 million return to Manchester United in 2016, putting in sensational performances one week, before donning his invisibility cloak the week after.

He endured a difficult season at Old Trafford last time out, with speculation suggesting he has had a falling out with Jose Mourinho regarding an apparent lack of tactical discipline. However, at this summers World Cup, the Frenchman was in majestic form over in Russia, leaving former Red Devils midfielder Paul Scholes to lament his lack of consistency:

“Paul needs to find consistency, I think” Scholes told beIN Sport.

“You look at his game… he can be brilliant one week, not so good the next.

“He seems to be a player that you get a performance out of one in every three or four games. If you’re going to win leagues, it’s not enough. It’s just not enough.”

However he has laid some of the blame at Jose Mourinho’s door for not being consistent in his squad selections:

“He needs to become that commanding player he was at Juventus,” Scholes continued.

“He was part of a set structure at Juventus; he knew every week what position he was going to play, who he was going to play with.

“I don’t think that helps him at United because I’ll be amazed if the same team has been named twice in a row and the same formation, there doesn’t seem to be a set way of where it’s going and that could possibly work against him.”
