Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has slammed Paul Pogba’s performance insisting that it is ‘disrespectful’ towards his manager Jose Mourinho.
The Frenchman started during the United’s 1-0 defeat against West Bromwich Albion at Old Trafford last weekend, but the former Juventus’ performance against the Baggies was too poor.
“I think that’s disrespectful towards the manager, and his teammates.”

The United’s most expensive player was substituted in 58 minutes following his disappointing display.
United legend Scholes has also criticised Alexis Sanchez for failing to make his mark at Old Trafford following his January move from Premier League rivals 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.”
