Paul Scholes picks out three stars Manchester United need to sign

Given that Pogba's relationship with Mourinho is going from bad to worse, it makes sense that the Frenchman would be looking for a fresh start somewhere else.

Manchester United players are reportedly unhappy with the level of criticism they have received from former stars like Paul Scholes, Gary Neville and Rio Ferdinand, with videos of their predecessors making mistakes on the pitch apparently being shared throughout the squad.

It was claimed that Pogba was dropped for the game and was laughing and joking with Luke Shaw and Pereira in the stands at Old Trafford during the game - which didn't sit well with the Red Devils manager.

The Belgium worldwide has a credible return of 20 goals in 40 Premier League starts for the Red Devils since joining from Everton in a £75m deal in July 2017.

Suffice to say, they are not overly realistic targets - even for a club as huge as United.

Scholes is never shy of saying what he really thinks about former side Manchester United.


"He does some of the best things in games, a great pass or dribble, a great touch or dribble", Scholes told an exclusive interview with ESPN.

"I loved that team, especially Pirlo and the way he was so relaxed as he controlled the game".

"We were watching Liverpool and City from afar and smirking as they changed managers and players every year, never getting anything right". "I do think they miss a couple of real class players that other top teams seem to have - a link player between the midfield and the forwards and also a controlling midfield player", he added.

"I'm not sure if he works hard enough but he's still a young man who has done well and scored a lot of goals".

Pogba greeted United's coaches and players but then reacted following something Mourinho said, with reports suggesting the manager was asking about a post on social media published just after the EFL Cup penalty shoot-out defeat to Derby County.
