Manchester United legend Roy Keane has taken a swipe at Paul Pogba despite his goal in the 3-0 victory over Aston Villa on Thursday.

According to Keane, Pogba focuses too much on social media rather than being a leader in the side.

Pogba netted his first goal since April 2019 as we claimed another huge win to boost our top-four hopes.

Speaking on Sky Sports after the game, Keane said: “What I would say about Pogba, we’ve been saying for the last year or two that he needs to take more of a lead with the team.

“I don’t think he wants to be a leader. I think he’ll enjoy that Harry Maguire has come into the club, showing different leadership skills.

“And obviously Fernandes, leadership skills on the pitch. And I think Pogba likes that.

“I don’t think he necessarily wants to be the main guy. He probably wants to be the main guy on the social media side of things, but on the pitch he’s thinking, “I’m glad of that, I’ll just be under that radar”.

“He doesn’t have to be now because he’s got a couple of other lads around him and he looks like he’s enjoying himself a bit more.”
