WATCH: United legend says Pogba has lost Mourinho trust

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba was again dominating the headlines this week when he was benched for his sides Champions League last 16 first leg encounter away to Sevilla.

Ander Herrera’s early injury meant the France international ended up playing most of the game, but issues around where best he fits into Jose Mourinho’s side persist.

In a fascinating discussion on BT Sport before the match, Premier League legends Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard all gave their opinions on the 24-year-old’s current struggles.

Former United centre-back Ferdinand revealed that he believes United are not set up in a way to get the best out of their record signing.

Scholes, however admitted he was not surprised Pogba was dropped for a big European game, as he lacks defensive discipline, and has lost the trust of his manager Jose Mourinho.

The former United midfielder also stated that he agrees with the view that Pogba is best suited best to play on the left of a midfield three, as he did against Everton back in January.
