Paul Scholes slams performance of Paul Pogba for United loss against Liverpool

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes that Paul Pogba should never play for United again after his horrendous performance against Liverpool on Sunday.

United went into half-time 4-0 down and were once again booed off the pitch by United fans. Pogba replaced winger Mason Greenwood at half-time in an attempt to rescue something from the game.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s change in tactics and introducing Pogba didn’t work as he was directly responsible for Liverpool’s fifth goal, losing the ball in the centre of the pitch.

Pogba losing the ball in the centre of the pitch meant that Mohamed Salah was able to complete his hat-trick and become the first-ever Premier League player to score a Premier League hat-trick at Old Trafford. Matters went from bad to worse when Paul Pogba was shown a red card for a high foot challenge on Liverpool’s Nabi Keita. Pogba was given the red card just 15 minutes after coming on.

What Paul Scholes said about Pogba’s performance in United vs Liverpool?

Paul Scholes talking about Pogba’s red card incident said

“Paul Pogba coming on to the pitch at halftime to try to help the team. And get a little respectability about it, tries to stand on the ball. Tries to show how strong he is in the middle of the pitch. He then gives the goal away,”

Paul Pogba’s reckless tackle on Naby Keita saw an initial yellow card upgraded to a red.

He also added

“Then later on gets sent off with a ridiculous tackle. Now you are 5-0 down with 10 men. You’d have to think, if Ole’s still a manager there, will we see Pogba again in a United shirt?” “It’s not Ole’s fault, don’t get me wrong. But that is a big part of it which almost summed the United performance up today.”

“Look, he probably will play, won’t he? But I don’t think they will be missing anything if he doesn’t. He’s had numerous chances. Everyone keeps saying he lacks consistency. But that is just discipline and disrespect for your manager and your teammates, what he’s done today.”

Thus, Manchester United will now have to rethink its decision of providing Ole with a new deal during the summers. Moreover, the fans are urging for a change in the Manchester United playing structure.
