Paul Pogba 'has never learned as a footballer', says Man United legend

Paul Scholes has claimed the Frenchman makes the same mistakes in every game and has not progressed during his time at the club.

Pogba is currently in his second spell at Manchester United but has failed to live up to expectations since his arrival in 2016.

The France international's contract is set to expire in the summer and Pogba is expected to move on from the club.

Paul Scholes believes the 29-year-old has all the attributes to be a world class player but one thing that's help him back is repeated mistakes on the pitch.

Scholes told talkSport: "I was there when he was a kid and this lad has got absolutely everything you would want in a footballer and a midfield player.

"His physique, he can run. I just don't think he's ever learned as a footballer, he constantly seems to make the same mistakes over and over again.

"It's disappointing, it looks like he's going to leave. He'll go somewhere, a manager will get a grip of him, and I think he'll do really well, as he did at Juventus.

"For some reason, at Man United, it hasn't worked out. It's a big disappointment. You see what he does with France."

Scholes did admit though that he hopes Pogba goes on to succeed at the next team he plays for.

"People see him the wrong way. He's a nice lad, he wants to work and learn. I hope he goes on and does really well. We all know he's got the ability and talent to be world class," Scholes added.

Pogba is currently on the injury list for United after limping off in their 4-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.

Fans have grown tired of Pogba's performances in recent months and booed him during their 3-2 win over Norwich City earlier this month.

There is a possibility it may have been his last game for the Red Devils with him reportedly out of action for four weeks but Pogba is hopeful it will not be the case.

He tweeted during his side's loss to Arsenal: "Absolutely gutted to not be able to help the team in today's game. I will work even harder to come back stronger and hopefully before the end of the season.

"It's not over," he added. "Thank you all for your support, United we would stand!"
