The France global has looked lacklustre in recent weeks and his lack of work-rate was viciously exposed in the 2-1 UEFA Champions League defeat to Sevilla on Wednesday.
Reports of a fallout between Mourinho and Pogba have rumbled under the surface throughout this season, but Scholes backed Mourinho's decision to drop the France global.
'But a team of 11 when you don't have a minimum of six, seven players performing and wanting to play and wanting to have the responsibility to have the ball, the desire to really play - because one thing is to play and another is to be on the pitch - it's hard to have a good performance'.
Russian Federation will 'of course' expel British diplomats after United Kingdom move: Lavrov
Russia's envoy at the global chemical weapons watchdog says the nerve agent used could have come from USA or British stockpiles. Russia's Defence Ministry said he was an "intellectual impotent" and Lavrov said he probably lacked education.
Paul Pogba's poor displays are simply down to him and just as his global manager says, it's normal for any player to go through.
Pogba has only started 18 of United's 30 Premier League games and Raiola has been vocal whenever his star client has been left out of the line-up - a stance that has annoyed Mourinho.
"Right now, he's making it personal and you can clearly see that on the pitch as he is sending out a lot of negative signals.
Yes, he might be having a more hard period, but it doesn't change what I think of him".
"It gets tiresome when you're sulking permanently".
