"Ole Can't Trust Him" - Paul Pogba Torn Apart In Damning Assessment

Paul Scholes has questioned Paul Pogba's future at Manchester United after manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left the Frenchman out of last night's crucial Champions League win over Atalanta.

The home side came from two goals down to win 3-2, but in the build-up to the clash at Old Trafford, the omission of Pogba was notable on the teamsheet.

Solskjaer instead opted for a midfield pivot of Fred and Scott McTominay, which former club legend Paul Scholes believes is a damning reflection of the lack of faith the coach has in Pogba.

Former Liverpool forward Peter Crouch echoed this sentiment, claiming that the World Cup winner can only be trusted in games where United will look to play on the counter.

"It's obvious the manager can't trust [Pogba]," Crouch said on BT Sport.

"I think he'd rather play [him against] Liverpool because they're better when they're counter-attacking.

"The lack of trust in Pogba is evident he's gone with Fred and McTominay because he can trust them and they are disciplined."

And United legend Scholes fully agreed with Crouch's assessment on the player's absence from the starting XI.

"Peter's hit the nail on the head, I don't think Ole can trust him," the 46-year-old stated.

"He's tried to trust him, he's given him loads of chances and he really wants to.

"But he's seen the lack of discipline Pogba has in that position and it could cost them dearly.

"Lack of trust in a player is not good but he's got to get over it."

Scholes didn't reserve his ire for just Pogba, however. Instead, the two-time Champions League also called out United's poor defending, which led to the hosts being 2-0 down inside the first half-hour.

As the clip below demonstrates, he wants to see a massive improvement from Solskjaer's men before next weekend's crucial trip to Anfield.
