Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville says Paul Pogba is playing for Instagram

Posted: 6 March 2018 Time: 14:17

Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville described midfielder Paul Pogba's display against Crystal Palace as someone who's playing for an 'Instagram video'.

Pogba's individual error from an attempted cross-field pass was intercepted in the build-up towards Andros Townsend's opener at Selhurst Park.

And despite Palace doubling their lead early on in the second-half, United rallied back to win the Premier League encounter 3-2.

But in the half-time analysis with Sky Sports, Neville was critical of the much-maligned France international's display.

"His great weakness is that he plays like he's playing in the park with his mates," the eight-time Premier League champion said.

"It's like everything he does is like a YouTube or Instagram video. It's like it's not serious, it's like a joke to him in terms of the way he goes about things.

"It's no wonder Jose Mourinho has left him out for the past few weeks a number of times."
