Roy Keane believes Paul Pogba is United’s best player, but the club needs more out of him.

Keane has questioned Pogba’s commitment to the club and his desire to even be in Manchester in the past.

Pogba’s future has been up in the air since his summer declaration to seek a new challenge. But his professionalism has been commended by his manager.

However, his performances of late have been below par, to say the least.

Keane has not shied away from being brutally honest about his old club and some of its underperforming stars.

Speaking on Sky Sports, Keane admitted that Pogba has the quality, but not often enough.

Keane believes a Pogba showing the form of the world Cup success with France, is what United want.

A consistent Pogba would have seen United lift more than a League cup and a Europa League since his return.

He said:

“Show a bit of courage, get on the ball, make things happen.”

“We’ve been very critical of Paul, but I agree with Gary [Neville] he still is probably their best player.”

“His mentality’s got to be right. I think it’s always a worry for a manager.”

He feels that consistency is Pogba’s biggest downfall.

He added:

“Imagine working with a player where you’re going into a game thinking, ‘What are we gonna get tonight?’”

“That’s no good for you if he’s your best player. You want it almost guaranteed he’s gonna give you eight out of ten every week.”

“The big question mark over Paul is he doesn’t do that enough. He’s not consistent enough since he’s gone to United.”

Keane feels tonights game against Arsenal is the ideal scenario for Pogab to dominate and show what he is capable of.

He concluded:

“I wanna see him dominating the game tonight, I look at the Arsenal midfield there and he should be dominating that midfield.”
