Former Manchester United captain Bryan Robson has urged Paul Pogba to learn to concentrate fully on his football career.
Bryan Robson, who made over 450 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions between 1981 and 1994, has called on Pogba to to treat football less as a game and accept that it is his full-time when speaking to Off the Ball:
“He’s on there (social media) a lot and he’s laughing and joking.
“He likes to be in that limelight, coming across that he’s a laid back character and he’s jovial and he wants a bit of banter with the fans.
“For me though, it’s a little bit too much. You need to win. It’s not a game, so that’s where somebody like myself, Roy Keane and Graeme Souness, those sorts of people, a Gary Neville when he’s commentating, we understood that.
“This isn’t a game, this is our living and we need to win and I think Paul’s got to get that a bit more into his character. This is a job.”
Pogba has been in and out of the side at Old Trafford in recent weeks, and rumours continue to swirl about a potential clash of styles with manager Jose Mourinho. The French international has struggled with injuries and form recently but will be hoping to play a big role in Man United’s hopes of clinching second place in the Premier League table and winning the FA Cup.
Earlier this week, French World Cup winner Christophe Dugarry criticised the attitude of Pogba and fellow international Antoine Griezmann after the a video of the former interviewing the latter for Canal was released just two days after Les Bleus were beaten 3-2 by Colombia in an international friendly.
