Ex pros often talk about how things were different in their day which will provoke lots of eye-rolling, but it might be worth listening to Paul Scholes.
He may have been media-shy as a player, but Scholesy doesn’t hold back as a pundit.
This is a player who experienced what is was like to be part of the most dominant teams in English history, so he should know what he’s talking about.
Manchester United are not the successful force they once were and have lots of work to do to reach previous heights. And nowadays it feels like every single decision made by the club attracts criticism.
The Daily Star recently reported on some of Scholes’ comments about how the club has dealt with Paul Pogba during the winter break, and it comes across as a bit of a rant.
Pogba missed the warm weather training camp in Spain and spent some time in the middle-east with ex-Man Utd team-mate Memphis Depay instead.

Scholes was speaking about how this would have went down if Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge, saying, “I don’t think it would have gone down very well. Players seem to go off and do their own stuff now, but when I was there our manager wouldn’t have allowed that type of thing to happen.”
The report goes on to claim Pogba is desperate to leave Old Trafford this summer.
