Scholes says Paul Pogba is not doing enough for Manchester United

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes says Paul Pogba must use his mind to succeed at Old Trafford.

The France midfielder struggled with his performances for United last season but impressed at the World Cup.

Speaking to beIN SPORTS, Scholes said: “Paul needs to find consistency, I think. 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.

“He needs to become that commanding player he was at Juventus. 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.

“But there’s no doubt the lad has real quality, he’s shown it at this World Cup. He can play, he’s such a strong lad – such a strong player – such a fit lad, he can run, great technique as well, great ability.

“But he needs to use his brain a little bit more to become a top footballer.”
