Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has reponded to Paul Scholes’ criticism of the Frenchman. Earlier, Scholes criticized Pogba following Manchester United’s match against Brighton and Hove Albion. United eventually lost the game 3-2 with Pogba scoring the club’s second goal in the dying seconds.
Scholes said of Pogba, “There’s a lack of leaders in the team, that’s why we thought Pogba might be the ideal candidate to be that leader but he wasn’t there [on Sunday]. He had another really poor game. He’s so inconsistent. ”
Raiola took to twitter to hit back at Scholes. He wrote, “Some people need to talk for fear of being forgotten. Paul Scholes wouldn’t recognise a leader if he was in front of Sir Winston Churchill.”
He added, “Paul Scholes should become sports director and advise Woodward to sell Pogba. Would be sleepless nights to find Pogba a new club.”
Pogba himself was critical of his performance in the match, stating that his attitude wasn’t right.
Manchester United are currently 9th in the standings. They take on Tottenham Hotspur on Monday.
