Keane: The one thing I had at United that Pogba doesn’t

Roy Keane believes that Paul Pogba “probably doesn’t have” any players at Manchester who set the “example” for him.

Pogba has failed to establish himself as one of Europe’s finest central midfielders since rejoining United for £89.3million in summer 2016.

This season has been difficult for the Frenchman, with Jose Mourinho dropping him from the starting line-up amid claims of private arguments between the pair.

Keane says that Pogba is “a good player”, but lacks the sort of “senior” guidance that he himself benefited from at Old Trafford.

“I like him, I think he’s a good player, a good kid,” Keane said. “He probably needs better help around him, good influences around the training ground.

“I was the luckiest man on the planet when I was a player, I always had good lads around me, senior players who led by example. Pogba probably doesn’t have that at United.

“He’s a good player. Would he feel he could have had a better season? Probably. Usually the good players are quite critical of themselves. When you play for Man United and you don’t win a trophy you probably would be critical of yourself.”
