Paul Scholes has delivered some brutal feedback for Paul Pogba , saying the Manchester United star "needs to use his brain" if he wants to become one of the world's best footballers.

The midfielder struggled with his performances for The Red Devils last season but impressed at the World Cup.

The 25-year-old helped lead his nation to glory in Russia with a particularly superb display in the final.

While Scholes rates Pogba in terms of his ability, the Utd legend believes he needs to show more consistency.

Speaking to beIN SPORTS, Scholes said: "Paul needs to find consistency, I think. You look at his game… he can be brilliant one week, not so good the next. He seems to be a player that you get a performance out of one in every three or four games.

"If you’re going to win leagues, it’s not enough. It’s just not enough.

"He needs to become that commanding player he was at Juventus. He was part of a set structure at Juventus; he knew every week what position he was going to play, who he was going to play with.

"I don’t think that helps him at United because I’ll be amazed if the same team has been named twice in a row and the same formation, there doesn’t seem to be a set way of where it’s going and that could possibly work against him.

"But there’s no doubt the lad has real quality, he’s shown it at this World Cup. He can play, he’s such a strong lad - such a strong player - such a fit lad, he can run, great technique as well, great ability.

"But he needs to use his brain a little bit more to become a top footballer."
