Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has hit out at Paul Scholes following the former Manchester United midfielder's criticism of the France international.

Speaking after United's 3-2 defeat at Brighton at the weekend, Scholes claimed the Red Devils were lacking leaders and said team captain Pogba had "another really poor game" and was "so inconsistent".

The ex-England playmaker, speaking to Australian network Optus Sport, also said of United's record signing: "I just don't think he uses his brain enough."

Raiola responded to those comments on Tuesday, saying on his Twitter account: "Some people need to talk for fear of being forgotten. Paul Scholes wouldn't recognize a leader if he was in front of Sir Winston Churchill. @paulpogba."
