Paul Scholes: ‘Paul Pogba disrespectful towards Jose Mourinho’

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has hit out at Paul Pogba for his “disrespectful” performance against West Bromwich Albion.

Pogba started against the Baggies, but was substituted after 58 minutes as the Red Devils went on to lose 1-0 to the Premier League’s last-placed side, which handed the title to bitter rivals Manchester City.

As well as slamming the former Juventus man for his display, Scholes also hit out as new signing Alexis Sanchez for failing to live up to the hype following his January switch from Arsenal.

“I thought it was a bit disrespectful against his manager the way he played here [against West Brom],” Scholes told BT Sport.

“I think he’s wanted to come out and create the Paul Pogba show, which is good, which is what you need. But he’s gone out doing stupid things – they don’t win games. It’s crazy stuff. Bad passing, it’s so casual.

“He’s not the only one who hasn’t performed as well as he should – I think Sanchez, the great player he was at Arsenal and Barcelona – he’s come in and been disappointing as well.”

Pogba’s disappointing display against West Brom came just a week after putting in arguably one of his best performances in a United shirt as the Red Devils ran out 3-2 winners over Man City in the derby.
