Paul Scholes aims dig at Paul Pogba in scathing assessment of Man Utd midfielder

Paul Scholes aimed criticism at Paul Pogba after Manchester United’s humiliating 2-0 defeat to Burnley at Old Trafford.

United were woeful throughout, and were certainly missing someone of Pogba’s spark in a depleted midfield of Andreas Pereira, Fred and Nemanja Matic.

Solskjaer is bereft of options in midfield and its quite staggering that the club have still not managed to make a signing in the position with just a week until the January transfer window shuts.

Pogba is currently recovering from an ankle operation after missing most of the season through injury.

But United legend Scholes does not feel an improvement will come when the Frenchman does eventually return, and claimed he will be looking to get a transfer away from the club.

“I don’t think Pogba is on his way back and even if he is on way back, he’ll be moaning about something else to try and not play – try to get his move away from the club,” Scholes told Premier League Productions, as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

“We keep going on about the players that are missing but that squad of players, that team tonight, should be enough to beat Burnley. I fear for the next four-or-five weeks because I don’t think any of them players are coming back quickly.

“I don’t think McTominay is coming back. Marcus Rashford is looking like being out for three months.”

There is an expectation that Pogba will leave Old Trafford this summer, further weakening Solskjaer’s midfield options.

The United manager is not being backed by the club and it will be a disgrace if no signings are brought in before February 1st.
