Neville questions Pogba’s commitment to Manchester United

Gary Neville has questioned the long-term commitment of Manchester United star Paul Pogba to the club in the wake of their goalless draw with Liverpool. 

The Frenchman was unable to unlock a Reds defence marshalled by Virgil van Dijk and backed up by the solid hands of goalkeeper Alisson Becker, failing to score or assist in a Premier League game under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for only the second time.

The uptick in Pogba’s form under the tutelage of the Norwegian has been encouraging for Manchester United fans, yet Neville is wary of the midfielder’s commitment to the club, claiming that the player’s agent could soon push for a move away from Old Trafford.

“To be balanced on Pogba, in the last two or three months he is looking like the £95 million player they signed,” the former full-back told Sky Sports.

“His agent and his character if he plays for United for the next five years no one will be happier than me and (Nemanja Vidic) but issues will emanate again.

“His commitment has to be long-term.

“His agent will be in his ear and he will want his little move. This is only three months of football out of two years.

“My personal worry is his agent will be into him to say we need to get over there or… that’s my worry. We need to know if he is in it for the long-term.”
