Paul Scholes has lavished praise on Paul Pogba for the potential he possesses at Manchester United, but he has warned that he still needs to improve the mental aspect of his game.
The French midfielder is widely regarded to be one of the most talented players at Manchester United after he sealed his world-record transfer move back to Old Trafford from Juventus in the summer of 2016.
Pogba has struggled to get going this season due to injury and suspension, but he will be hoping to hold down a regular spot in the first-team for the Red Devils in the coming weeks and months.
The 24-year-old has scored three goals and made five assists in eight Premier League games for the Red Devils so far this season but he will be hoping to be a more regular fixture in the first team in the next few matches.
Scholes is clearly a huge admirer of the talented France international, but he admits that the midfielder still has plenty of room for improvement in certain areas.
Scholes is quoted as saying by Metro: “Paul Pogba can be this box-to-box midfielder, although he can do a lot better, especially score more goals.
“He has a big range of attributes. He is fast, his passing game is exceptional. I am sure he will cross these levels.
“Mentally, he still has a lot of room to improve to become more consistent. He should especially try not to do so many complicated things.
“He has a high price-tag [£89m] and maybe that gives him the feeling that he has to show off his talent.
“But he doesn’t have the ability to dribble past three or four players before hitting it in the top corner. He will never be this type of player and sometimes he tries too much to do things that do not match his qualities.
“If he starts to try to dribble by players, he is no longer himself.”
Pogba will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Boxing Day with a home clash against Burnley.
