Roy Keane: I wouldn’t believe a word that Paul Pogba says

Having spent much of his career as the world’s angriest footballer, Roy Keane continues to showcase his post-playing brilliance as the world’s angriest pundit.

The Irishman was in typical critical fashion on Sky Sports on Wednesday evening, saying that he ‘doesn’t believe a word’ of what Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba says.

Working as a pundit for the Manchester derby, Keane was shown footage of Pogba apologising to fans following Sunday’s 4-0 defeat at Everton. However, never afraid to speak his mind, Keane was stinging in his assessment of the 26-year-old Frenchman.

“I wouldn’t believe a word he says,” Keane said.

“There is no meaning behind it and I don’t even think he believes what he says any more.

“He spoke about being a good team-mate, but if you are being a good team-mate, you have to run back. You need to set a good example at your football club and he is a senior player, but I don’t think he leads by example. My eyes don’t lie to me.

“He’s a talent, but the real top players make their team-mates better and work for the team, but he doesn’t do that. He plays for himself.”
