The French star has dropped significantly in recent weeks.


Manchester United

star Paul Scholes believes Pogba will stop doing stupid things after the age of 35.

Pogba, who missed the match against Tottenham due to suspension, was in squad for the match against Atlanta last night. However, after his poor performance, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decided to replace him, despite the Red Devils being 2-1 behind. The French midfielder lost the ball 13 times, one of which turned into a dangerous situation for the opponent. United finally equalized with Ronaldo's goal in the 91st minute, and now Scholes claims that Pogba will stop his stupid behavior after the age of 35.

Scholes said:

"He wasn't great, he was sloppy. I don't think we question the character of the team, but the quality was seriously lacking.

"We know him [Pogba], we've been with him. He needs somebody talking to him all the time. He needs somebody there that he totally respects. He needs experienced players behind him.

"How old is he, 28, 29? He's a really experienced player, but he's one of them, he'll get to 35 and he'll be exactly the same. He'll still be doing this stupid stuff where he's trying to stud-roll the ball, trying to hold people off, show how strong he is, show how skilful he is, and people know it now. They watch it all the time.

"[I would be on to him] every single day. One and two touches, and pass it. And concentration: the biggest thing with Paul is his concentration. He goes away with the fairies at times.

"Think of the Juventus team he played in, where he was brilliant, which is why we signed him, by the way. The experience around him: [Andrea] Pirlo, [Giorgio] Chiellini, [Leonardo] Bonucci, [Gianluigi] Buffon, an aggressive manager who's telling him all the time. He will need that treatment until he's 35."
