Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba brushes off claims from Roy Keane that he is a “big problem” for the club.
Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has brushed off criticism from club legend Roy Keane.
Keane was serving as a TV pundit for last week’s Manchester derby when he claimed that Pogba was a “big problem” for United and suggested his words could not be trusted.
However, the 26-year-old has insisted that he is unconcerned by the opinions of pundits and is instead fully focused on his performances on the pitch.
“There’s no problem. They’re paid to say things in front of the camera. I’m just focused on what happens on the pitch,” Pogba told RMC when asked about Keane’s comments.
“They can say what they want, they’re paid for that. I’m not paid to speak. I’m paid to be on the pitch and to fight for my team. That’s all.”
Pogba was named in the PFA Team of the Year this season having scored 13 goals and created nine more in 33 Premier League appearances.
