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

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."
