Man Utd legend Scholes: Pogba will just keep moaning

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has launched a new attack on Paul Pogba.

Many believe the midfielder will make a big difference to Solskjaer's squad when he makes his return to full fitness. But, club legend Scholes has an alternative view.

"I don't think Pogba is on his way back [from injury] and even if he is on way back, he'll be moaning about something else to try and not play - try to get his move away from the club," Scholes told Premier League Productions after United's 2-0 defeat to Burnley at Old Trafford.

"We keep going on about the players that are missing but that squad of players, that team tonight, should be enough to beat Burnley. I fear for the next four-or-five weeks because I don't think any of them players are coming back quickly.

"I don't think McTominay is coming back. Marcus Rashford is looking like being out for three months.

"He is stuck with these players for the next six weeks and he has got to somehow coach these players and work these players to get a bit of confidence back. They need to try and get some results - they've got some hard games in the next few weeks. This is a really tough time for them."
