Paul Pogba has now been officially permitted to change his hairstyle by the chairman of the Committee of Middle-Aged Men.
Pogba’s fashion sense and constant changing of his hair has been a sticking point for numerous pundits over the years, with Keane chief among them.
The midfielder ensured that his ability would take centre stage on Sunday however, scoring for France in a 4-2 win over Croatia in the World Cup final. Read 16 Conclusions from the game.
Although Graeme Souness and Garth Crooks are yet to give their permission to Pogba with regards to changing his hair, it is believed that Keane’s U-turn will be enough.
“I don’t mind Pogba dancing now,” Keane told ITV.
“He’s entitled to have a dance now he’s won the World Cup. He can do whatever the hell he wants with his hair.”
Rio Ferdinand chose to concentrate on his performance, stating that club manager Jose Mourinho must find a way to “unlock this Pogba” for United.
“He showed in this tournament he has it all – the defensive discipline and attacking – but it hasn’t come together yet in a Manchester United shirt,” he told BBC.
“Mourinho has to unlock this Pogba at United. The reason why United paid all this money is because at Juventus he was affecting games. But at United he isn’t receiving the ball from an Andrea Pirlo or somebody.”
