Champions League: Scholes names only Man Utd star who would get into Liverpool’s team
Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes has insisted that Paul Pogba is the only Red Devils player that would get into Liverpool’s team after the 28-year-old’s recent return to form.
Pogba missed many matches for Man United in the current season due to a long-term hamstring problem he sustained while on international duty with France last November.
Man United have remained unbeaten in the Premier League since Pogba made his first-team return at the start of February.
Pogba has one goal and one assist in his last four Premier League matches and was impressive as Ralf Rangnick’s men won 4-2 at Leeds on Sunday.
“Pogba in his best form would [get into Liverpool’s team],” Scholes told Premier League Productions ahead of Man United’s Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie with Atletico Madrid on Wednesday.
“He is indicative of what the club are doing. Every player is inconsistent. People running the club are inconsistent in what they are doing.
“I have been a big critic of Paul, but if you are an opposing player going to Old Trafford and you are playing against Fred and McTominay – all day long.
“Now, you don’t know what you are going to get with Paul. But when he is on his game, he is brilliant.
“But when he isn’t, then against Liverpool and Man Citys, you might struggle in those areas. Where do Man United go next year to replace him?”
Pogba’s contract with Man United will expire at the end of the season.
