Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes, has reacted as manager Jose Mourinho, dropped Paul Pogba and Rumelu Lukaku from United squad against Arsenal on Wednesday.

Scholes sympathised with the decision, saying United are still waiting on the 25-year-old to ‘mature’ as a player.
Scholes backed Mourinho’s decision saying Pogba cannot be trusted.

Mourinho rang the changes for United in their 2-2 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford, making seven in total from the team that drew 2-2 with Southampton.
Before the game, Mourinho explained that both Pogba and Lukaku had been left out for ‘technical and tactical’ reasons.

Speaking on BT Sport, Scholes said, “Pogba was poor at the weekend [against Southampton].
“He can’t trust him, how can you trust him when he’s giving the ball away so often?

“You think about him at Juventus where he was very good, but he always played in a wider position.
“The manager there Allegri couldn’t trust him in that central position. This is the performance you get from him where he can’t seem to pass a ball without doing a trick or a flick.
“You just hope some day the penny will drop with him. He’s getting to an age now where you think it should be but performances are showing it’s taking him too long for him to become a mature player.”
