Legendary Roy Keane has labeled midfielder Paul Pogba “a problem” for Manchester United squad.
Pogba, 26, has come under heavy criticism lately over his attitude and dispirited performances for the Red Devils especially in their back to back defeats to Everton and rivals Manchester City.
The Frenchman is unsettled and reportedly told his teammates on Wednesday that he wants to leave this summer and that the club cannot block his possible transfer to Real Madrid.
Speaking to SkySports, Roy blasted Pogba, saying that he is “a big problem” in the team.
“The guy is a talented boy, but we’re saying the same thing over and over again. The number of times we’ve seen him in games where he is not sprinting or running back. He’s a big problem for United.
Graeme (Souness) spoke earlier about needing good senior players at your football club. He’s a senior player, played in big competitions and won big trophies. I don’t think he leads by example, from what I see. I don’t know what he’s like on the training ground or when they’re travelling, but from what I see. He mentioned body language and pride, but I don’t see it in his performances. My eyes don’t lie to me.”
I’m always intrigued by comments after games when they say, ‘we’ll be up for the next game’. You’re supposed to be up for every game. It doesn’t matter whether you’re playing for Man United or Altrincham. You have to be up for every game of football.”
