Roy Keane thinks that Paul Pogba must find consistency in his game if he wants to help Man Utd start winning titles again.
Pogba has been impressive since the Red Devils returned to the Premier League after he looked certain he would leave the club this summer.
Now the sounds of Old Trafford are that he will stay and help Man Utd – who beat Norwich on Saturday to advance to the FA Cup semifinals – challenge the Premier League titles again and Keane is a big fan.
“Obviously Pogba has had his critics because he is so talented,” Keane told Irish independent. “If you don’t play week after week, the people of the week will support you. I always say there is a compliment to this.
“People know he is an exceptional talent, but for some reason he has not gelled. He has obviously had an injury problem this season.
“Just because a player is going through a rough patch doesn’t mean he doesn’t give everything. Sometimes a player can take a few hits. The players lose a little confidence.
“Everyone is quick to criticize Pogba for its off-field activities, but let me tell you if Pogba won week after week for United, people would tolerate its off-field activity, its activity on social media.
“The key to Pogba, if he wants to become a really important player for Man United, is consistency. It is not good to show up every two or three weeks and produce your piece of magic.
“I think he is more than capable of doing it, he has done it before. But do it week after week and have Man United compete for the titles. I have a lot of time for him. I think he’s a talented boy. “
