Paul Scholes Says Paul Pogba Should Never Play For Manchester United Again

Paul Scholes delivered a damning verdict on Paul Pogba and says that the midfielder should not play for the club again after receiving a straight red card in Sunday's humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Pogba came off the bench at the start of the second half with United already 4-0 down, but was heading for an early bath following a dangerous tackle on Naby Keita.

The Manchester United legend believes Pogba has been given endless opportunities to prove his worth to the team, and says that the endless furore around the Frenchman means it is better to show him the exit door.

"Paul Pogba coming on to the pitch at half time to try to help the team and maybe 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... gives the goal away," he told Premier League Productions in quotes published by The Sun.

"Then later on gets sent off with a ridiculous tackle, now you're 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?

"He's caused mayhem over the last couple of years. Everyone knows what a talent he is, everybody trusts him, every manager trusts him, tried to give him his head and let him be the player he's been.

"But with all the commotion, not signing his contract, almost holding the club to ransom, and then he comes on and does something like that.

"It's not Ole's fault, don't get me wrong, but that's part of it which almost summed the United performance up today.

"Look, he probably will play [again] won't he? But I don't think they will be missing anything if he doesn't.

"He's had numerous chances, he keeps saying he lacks consistency, but that is just [a lack of] discipline and disrespect for your manager and your teammates, what he's done today."
