Paul Scholes pays tribute to 'brave' Paul Pogba

Paul Pogba is "a courageous young player" who has "had a good first season" at Manchester United, according to club legend Paul Scholes.

"Wayne [Rooney]'s been an unbelievable player for Manchester United".

The 24-year-old - who is recovering from a hamstring injury after a heavy workload of 41 matches in all competitions - has divided opinion, earning mixed reviews for his performances.

Pogba was ordered to put his feet up but has now been seen cycling around United's Carrington training complex in recent days.

Vidic backs Bailly to shine at Utd. "It's up to him, I suppose really", the former England worldwide told Omnisport.

"If they can come out of them with five, possibly six points, then I think it will be very good and that will set them up for the top four". I believe Lyon are perhaps the obvious competitors to United. "I know he's had a little bit of criticism, but from what I've seen.he's a courageous young player", Scholes told Omnisport.

The club captain has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford when the transfer window opens, and Scholes believes as United's all-time top scorer Rooney should be able to make the call.

The 11-time Premier League victor believes Mourinho has done an excellent job at Old Trafford so far, even though the Red Devils are in fifth place, 17 points behind the Portuguese's former employers Chelsea.

The Manchester club are also in the quarter-finals of the Europa League against Anderlecht under the leadership of Mourinho, who replaced Louis van Gaal in the off-season.

"It has to be one of those ways but I think, both ways, they will do it", the midfield great said. "His signings have been really good", Robson added.

"I think (Paul Pogba)'s done well. But, apart from that, I don't see too many problems for them in that competition".
