Paul Scholes: Summer Man United signing has been alright, he’ll get a lot better

Paul Scholes delivers his verdict on Paul Pogba's start to life back at Manchester United

Paul Scholes is tipping Paul Pogba to improve his performances for Manchester United in the coming weeks and months following a mixed start to his spell back at the club.

The French midfielder returned to Old Trafford in a world-record transfer deal from Juventus last summer after initially being sold to the Serie A side back in 2012.

Pogba has produced some improved performances for Manchester United in recent weeks after initially making a slow start to life back at Old Trafford.

The 23-year-old has been a regular fixture in the Red Devils’ first team this term.

Scholes has been relatively impressed by what he has seen from Pogba so far this season but is expecting to see some improvement from the midfielder in the games to come.

Speaking in an interview with the Republik on Mancunia, Scholes said: “I think he’ll get a lot better.

“I think he’s been alright, a seven or eight out of 10 season, but I still think there’s more to come from him.

“It’s a new league, there’s been big expectation on him because of the price tag and sometimes he’s tried to live up to that a bit more than he should do, really.

“But no, if we can keep him here for the next five or six years then I think we’ll win a lot of trophies with him.”

Manchester United are currently preparing for their FA Cup sixth-round clash against Blackburn Rovers on Sunday afternoon.
