Manchester United legend Roy Keane has provided some advice to French midfielder Paul Pogba following his average showing over the past few weeks. The 24-year-old has received criticism from a section of the fans since February with his performances now up to scratch when compared to the early stage of the campaign.
There has been a lot of debate as to whether Mourinho should switch from 4-2-3-1 formation to 4-3-3 to improve Pogba’s performances on the playing field, but Keane believes the Frenchman should rather focus on his game than jump into matters which do not concern him.
Roy said on ITV Sport via The Express: “I think any top player in midfield should be able to play in a two or a three. So the guy just needs to do better himself and focus on what the game of football is all about.”
Pogba has failed to play the full 90 minutes in the last three appearances owing to his limited impact, and much of it has come from him trying to push forward to contribute on the attack than focusing on his main duty which is to intercept play alongside Nemanja Matic in the centre of the park.
Jose Mourinho has dismissed talks of a potential rift between him and Pogba during the weekly press-conference, but even the Portuguese admits that the midfielder has been going through a lean patch, which he attributes to have begun following his straight red-card versus Arsenal in December.
