Keane criticizes Pogba after Manchester United’s defeat

Fri, Mar. 16, 2018
CAIRO – 16 March 2018: Former Manchester United legend, Roy Keane, maintains the temperamental character that defined him as a footballer during his 12 seasons playing for the red devils.

Manchester United suffered a Champions League 2-1 defeat to Sevilla in the round of 16 which was enough to rule the ‘red devils’ out of the biggest club tournament in the world.

The Irishman attacked Manchester United players for their performance but pointed hard at Pogba: "Pogba is a big problem and if he can’t get in the starting 11 then you’re in trouble," Keane said on ITV.
"You expect big players to come on and change the game. He came on last night and did nothing. We saw with the first goal, his reaction to it was like a schoolboy.”

Pogba appeared as a substitute after he replaced Fellaini in the 60th minute. A substitution didn’t help Manchester United at all as Sevilla’s French attacker Wissam Ben Yedder scored a brace and put off the Old Trafford fans’ enthusiasm.

"He doesn’t smell danger. The reason you’re part of a team is that when your teammate makes a mistake, you cover for him and make up for it.”

"No-one is helping each other and they’re not playing like the great United teams where you have to dig a result out even on an off night. They’re playing as individuals and don’t seem capable of being able to do that.”
