Roy Keane launches a staunch defense of Paul Pogba
The Frenchman has come under the scanner for what is perceived as underperforming for the club. Keane refuses to buy the argument and believes that the 27-year-old gives his all for United.
“Obviously Pogba has had his critics because he is so talented.”
Now back to fitness, the French World Cup winner is looking to form a dynamic partnership with January signing Bruno Fernandes. Keane believes Pogba will play an important role as the squad continues to progress under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Injury has been a major reason for the Frenchman’s absence this season. Keane believes a player can lose confidence when carrying a knocks.
“Just because a player is having a difficult time doesn’t mean they aren’t giving their all.”
“The key for Pogba, if he wants to become a really important player for Man United, is consistency. It’s no good turning up every two or three weeks and producing your piece of magic.”
Keane too touches on the topic and admits that Pogba will have to be more consistent. Unless he can produce the same level of performance every week, he cannot be considered as a match-winner for United.

The former Man United skipper also believes the Frenchman’s off-field antics would not get the same coverage had United been successful on the pitch.
Hopefully, Pogba will now start afresh at United and show us exactly what he is capable of, week in week out.
