‘HE CAN BE FRUSTRATING’
Man Utd legend Roy Keane has said that midfielder Paul Pogba “can be frustrating”.
France spectacularly crashed out of Euro 2020 on penalties to Switzerland.
And Pogba scored a worldie, but struggled in parts of the game – leading to criticism from both Gary Neville and Keane.
Keane, in particular, said: “He can be frustrating.
“This is all a part of Paul’s character, which people love to see, but then I’d be looking at the goal they conceded in injury time, where he was sloppy in midfield. That’s the bit I’d be really critical about.
“It seems harsh because he’s done some brilliant stuff going forward tonight. There’s no doubting Paul’s quality, just the other side, maybe his maturity.
“We’ve mentioned all night, and United have had the same problem, can he play in a two in midfield? He probably can’t, doesn’t have the discipline.
“He was at his best in Juventus when he probably got a bit more freedom and was surrounded by more men, more characters, probably better quality players.
“But even today, he still leaves you frustrated. For all his brilliant quality coming forward, I still think he lacks that discipline defensively.
“That’s the key, the top players manage to do it week in week out and Paul, to me, still doesn’t quite do it.”
