United’s iconic midfielder didn’t mince his words when asked about his current successors
“Pogba is going in there today – despite all his talent, you have questions about him defensively.
“I don’t want to mention Fred again because it seems like I’m on his case all the time. But sometimes I think if you’re going to play in central midfield for a big team and a big club you have to put your cap on someone and say he’s brilliant at moving forward or he’s brilliant defensively or he’s got a goal in him , or he’s a great athlete. I don’t see any of them [those qualities] with Fred.’

When discussing the players who could cost United points, the former captain pointed to No. 1 David De Gea and expressed concerns about two more midfielders in Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic.
Keane said: ‘I think McTominay has a chance to be that player, Matic, you know… would any of these players be on the Man City, Chelsea or Liverpool teams?
“I don’t see it, so I wouldn’t know what their best combination is, so that’s a problem.
“I think that’s exactly where they will fall short and yet I know he did a good job today and gets a few compliments… the keeper.”
