Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has run out of patience with Paul Pogba and no longer trusts him to play in central midfield for Manchester United, according to Paul Scholes.

The 28-year-old was dropped from the starting XI by the Norwegian for the crunch Champions League group match against Atalanta at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Fellow midfielder Fred was named as Scott McTominay's midfield partner ahead of Pogba, following the latter's disappointing performance in the 4-2 defeat by Leicester at the weekend.

And United midfield great Scholes believes Solskjaer has handed Pogba several chances to impress in a deeper position, but ultimately his inability to show discipline there has cost him.

'He [Solskjaer] just does not trust him [Pogba] in that position,' Scholes told BT Sport ahead of the Group F encounter.
