Manchester United legend, Roy Keane has come out to question Paul Pogba’s maturity as a player. He recently revealed that the MUFC midfielder clearly lacked discipline defensively vs Switzerland at Euro 2020.
Keane added that his criticism might seem harsh after the French player’s wonder goal but it is the honest truth.
His words, “I’d be looking at the goal they conceded in injury time, where he was really sloppy in midfield. That’s the bit I would be critical of,”
“That seems harsh because he has done some brilliant stuff. There is no doubting Paul’s quality, but it is just the other stuff, his maturity.”
“We’ve mentioned all that. United have had all the problems as well, can he play in a two in midfield, he probably can’t because he doesn’t have the discipline.”
“He was at his best in Juventus where he had a bit more freedom and was probably surrounded by more men and characters, they had better quality players.”
“Even tonight, he leaves you frustrated. For all of the brilliant qualities going forward, I still think he lacks discipline defensively. That’s the key (to go to the next level). The top players do it week in, week out. Paul doesn’t do that.”
Viera added, “I completely agree,”
“When you look at his potential, what he can do in midfield, you expect more from him.”
“If he played next to Roy he would maybe be a different player because he needs someone on his back putting him under pressure and being demanding of him.”
“It is frustrating because he can give much more than what he is giving to the team.”
