Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has weighed in with his opinion on Paul Pogba's current struggles.
The French midfielder, who joined the Reds for £89m in 2016, has been hauled off by Jose Mourinho in defeats away at Tottenham and Newcastle.
Pogba - who has been playing alongside Nemanja Matic in a midfield two - was dropped for the 2-0 win over Huddersfield Town.
“One of the best games Pogba had was the Everton game, when he was on the left of Matic - in a similar position to the one he played at Juventus - and Ander Herrera was on the right,” Ryan Giggs told Sky Sports last week.
“I think that position where he’s on the left of a midfield three is where he’s at his best. He’s a brilliant crosser of the ball and I don’t think he’s as effective when he’s having to do more defensive work in central areas.
“I’d like to see him in a 4-3-3 with Matic sitting, Herrera to the right and Pogba to the left, with a selection of the front three thriving off more creativity behind them."
Roy Keane's savage take on Pogba
Keane is not the type to put an arm around a player who is struggling - and he didn't hold back with his comments on Wednesday night concerning Man United's club-record signing.
"Any top player in midfield should be able to play in a two or a three," Keane told ITV when asked about Pogba's struggles.
"The guy needs to do better himself and focus on what football is really about."
Man United fans react
Keane's comments about his old club typically draw a big reaction from United supporters on social media.
That was certainly the case here.
Man United will look to get back to winning ways when they face Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup on Saturday evening.
