'Pogba Needs To Use His Brain More!'
'Manchester United Star Paul Pogba Needs To Use His Brain More!'
Manchester United's record signing Paul Pogba may be a World Cup winner, but he needs to "use his brain more", according to a former Red Devils star.
The 25-year-old, who is entering the third year of his second spell at United, showed signs of his old self as he played a vital role in France's 2018 FIFA World Cup-winning campaign in Russia.
Many feel the Frenchman answered many of his critics with his performances for Les Bleus at the global showpiece, but former England international Paul Scholes believes Pogba still needs to improve further.
"Paul needs to find consistency, I think. I think if you look at his game, he can be brilliant one week, not so good the next week," Scholes told beIN SPORTS.
"He seems to be a player that you get a performance one in every three or four games. Moreover, if you are going to win leagues, it is not enough, it is just not enough. He needs to become that commanding player he was at Juventus.
"There's no doubt the lad's got real quality. He has shown that in this World Cup, I think that he can play.
"He is such a strong lad, he can run, he has (got) great technique as well, great ability. However, he needs to use his brain a little bit more to become a top footballer."
Pogba made 37 appearances for the Red Devils last season, scoring six goals and assisting a further 12 strikes.
