The former Manchester United midfielder said that he believes the France international could be heading for a summer exit from Old Trafford.

Paul Scholes has hit out at Paul Pogba, saying the Manchester United midfielder did “stupid things” against West Brom on Sunday.

Pogba started against the Baggies, but was hauled off after 58 minutes as United went on to lose 1-0 to the Premier League’s last-place side.

The defeat clinched the title for crosstown rivals Manchester City, and the former Man Utd midfielder didn’t hold back when discussing the Frenchman’s performance at Old Trafford.

“I thought it was a bit disrespectful against his manager the way he played here [against West Brom],” Scholes said on BT Sport prior to United’s match at Bournemouth on Wednesday.

“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.”

Scholes didn’t reserve all his criticism for Pogba, as he also opined that one of the club’s newest signings hasn’t carried his weight.

“He’s not the only one who hasn’t performed as well as he should,” Scholes said of Pogba.
