Cape Town - Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has defender Paul Pogba from criticism that he has underperformed since joining from Juventus.

The French midfielder has not dazzled as much as was probably expected after his record-breaking move to the Premier League, but Scholes is happy with what he brings to the team.

"I think Pogba has done well," Scholes told Omnisport. "I know he has had a little bit of criticism, but from what I have seen he is a brave young player.

"He is always willing to take the ball. He will always try stuff – he will try passes, he will try shots on goal.

"I think he has had a good first season, settling back into England. It is not always easy, but I think he has done alright and he can only improve."

Fifth-placed United are locked in a fierce race to finish in the top four of the Premier League, and have two games in hand to make up the four points that separate them from old rivals Liverpool in fourth.

Pogba himself is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury which will see him miss Saturday’s clash with West Brom at Old Trafford.
