Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba’s struggles this season have been the subject of widespread debate by both fans and the media in recent times.
Some blame the France internationals poor form on his manager Jose Mourinho’s rigid tactical approach, whereas others believe it is the 24-year-old’s lack of positional discipline that has seen him slip down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Former Man United captain Gary Neville has now revealed that he thinks it is Pogba’s lack of concentration that is stopping him from becoming the type of world class midfielder most observers believed he was when the Red Devils broke the then world transfer record in the summer of 2016 to take him back to Old Trafford from Juventus.
‘Paul Pogba has got the character and personality to play for United, there’s no doubt about that,’
‘He’s played in the biggest matches in Europe at a huge club in Juventus.’
‘What he has got to do is perform consistently. Some will say it is down to the position he plays, while some will say it is his lack of concentration and focus.
‘It is never a matter of a black and white in the sense that there’s always a player’s reason and always a manager’s reason, but as I look at it he needs to play with higher levels of concentration.’ Neville wrote on Sky Sports.
