Paul Scholes: ‘I loved Pirlo’s Juventus’

United legend Paul Scholes offered his own take on Paul Pogba’s time in Manchester while expressing his love for Andrea Pirlo’s Juve team
The Ex-Manchester United midfielder spoke to ESPN and offered an explanation for why Pogba may be failing to have the impact so many expected.
“Has he done enough for United? How old is he, 25? He does some of the best things in games, a great pass or dribble, a great touch or dribble.
“Then, five minutes later, he’ll do one of the worst things like his brain has switched off, like it’s all about him because he’s just shown everyone how good he is.
“That becomes easy to play against because you know that cockiness will come. Against Wolves, he showed a great touch to Fred but then the next minute he’d given the ball away in midfield, which led to a goal. That sums him up.
“We never saw that at Juventus, but [Pogba] was a smaller fish there. Look around that team, with [Gianluigi] Buffon, [Andrea] Pirlo, [Leonardo] Bonucci, [Giorgio] Chiellini, [Claudio] Marchisio: great experienced players.
“I loved that team, especially Pirlo and the way he was so relaxed as he controlled the game. Pogba was part of a great team but he’s come to United where he’s got nobody to control him like he had at Juventus.
