Paul Pogba urged to prove his worth by United legend Scholes

French midfielder Paul Pogba has been urged to prove his worth in the Manchester United midfield ahead of the league resumption by Paul Scholes.

Pogba has rarely featured for United this season but is back in full training with United hoping that he can help them push for a Champions League spot.

Former United great Scholes, however, feel that Pogba should prove he is worthy of a place in the team as he still has a little bit of work to do to get into the team.

“Paul has got a little bit of work to do to get into the team. Before the outbreak happened and the stop happened, you have to say that the players that were playing-Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay and Fred - they were really doing well in midfield.

“It's not going to be straightforward for Paul. He's got some work on his hands just to get back into the team. But we all know what Paul is capable of. He's a top player when he's on form. The better players you play with-surely that can only be to the benefit of the team,” Scholes is quoted by the Daily Mirror.

The France midfielder hasn't played for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side since Boxing Day and underwent ankle surgery in January but will be hoping to win his place back in the United side when they play their first Premier League match back at Tottenham Hotspur on June 19.

In his absence, United was on an 11-match unbeaten run in all competitions when the season was suspended in March, with the likes of Fred, Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic and January signing Bruno Fernandes performing well in midfield.
