Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho argues with Paul Pogba
Thursday, February 15, 2018
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been criticised by the club’s former captain Roy Keane.
Under-fire Frenchman Pogba, 24, is coming under increasing scrutiny with he, and his team-mates, turning in some below-par performances.
In their recent 2-0 defeat to Tottenham, the £89.3million was outclassed by his opponents and he was hauled off after 66 minutes in the weekend loss to Newcastle.

It’s now being reported, by the Daily Record, Pogba wants Mourinho to play a three-man midfield to better utilise his skillset.
But former Red Devils skipper Keane believes if he was truly a world class performer he would be able to showcase himself in the current formation.
He told ITV: “Any top player 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’s all about.”
