Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes sounds like he might never become a real fan of Paul Pogba after this weekend’s comments.

After missing the win over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend due to suspension, the Frenchman was back in the team against Atalanta on Tuesday but was substituted at 2-1 in the second half.

Reviewing his performance after the outing, Scholes expressed extreme annoyance like he has no affection at all for Pogba.

“Pogba needs somebody on him all the time. Somebody there that he totally respects, he needs experienced people behind him,” he said via BT Sport.

“How old he? 28? He’s a really experienced player. But he’s one of them that will get to 35 and be exactly the same.

“He’ll still be doing the stupid stuff where he’s stud-rolling the ball, holding people off showing how strong and skilful he is.

“The biggest thing with Paul is his concentration. He goes away with the fairies at times.

“You think of the Juventus team he played in, where he was brilliant and was why we signed him.

“The experience around him [at Juventus] – [Andrea] Pirlo, [Giorgio] Chiellini, [Leonardo] Bonucci, [Gianluigi] Buffon, an aggressive manager. He will need that treatment until he’s 35,” the former England star concluded.
