Cadbury Event

'Pogba Will Be Forgiven Like Ronaldo Was'

Following his controversial comments about perhaps leaving Manchester United a few months ago, club legend Paul Scholes feels the Frenchman will be forgiven if he stays at the club, just like Cristiano Ronaldo was in 2008.

'Man Utd Players Must Kick Pogba In Training!'

While on international duty with France after the 2018/19 season, the midfielder admitted that he would be open to a new challenge ahead of this current campaign.

Pogba, however, is still a United player with just over two weeks to go until the closure of the European transfer window.

With it looking increasingly unlikely that the Les Bleus star will join Real Madrid, the club said to be most interested in signing him, Scholes believes the speculation surrounding his future will all be forgotten about in a few weeks' time.

"I think it did happen, two or three times (a player wanting to leave during his United career)," he told the Daily Mail.

"It happened with Cristiano, and Wayne (Rooney), so I think it'll be accepted (Pogba's comments).

"Paul is not a bad lad so as long as he is committed to the rest of the team and playing every week, then there won't be a problem."

Despite not having his best game, Pogba assisted twice in United's 4-0 win against Chelsea in their Premier League opener on Sunday evening.
