Manchester United legend Gary Neville has passed on some advice to Paul Pogba, telling him how he can improve his performances.
The Frenchman has perhaps unfairly come in for some criticism for his recent performances in central midfield with some fans claiming he lacks discipline.
Although he should certainly shoulder some blame, other supporters have pointed the finger at Jose Mourinho for failing to use him correctly.
Pogba has proven to be absolutely brilliant when playing in the 4-3-3 formation but seems to struggle when forced to play in the double pivot of a 4-2-3-1.
Neville believes that while this is true, the midfielder could add something else to his game to make him a better player for United.
Gary Neville on Pogba: “He does need to add maturity to his game. He’d be better in a three in the big matches. United are far better with him in the team. If you look at him as an individual, he’s extremely talented.” #mufc

Gary’s assessment of Paul as an individual is something that can be applied to other players in the Red Devils squad.
Some sections of fans have been absolutely disgusted with the club’s loss to Newcastle as they believe the quality of players are there and they’re simply not being used correctly.
Lukaku had an extraordinary game in which he certainly didn’t deserve to be on the losing team but the others could’ve performed better perhaps.
Sanchez was impressive but was guilty of missing a chance as was Martial who was forced to play in the unnatural position of right wing.
Lingard meanwhile seems to have seen his purple patch of form come to an end and whilst he wasn’t poor, he could’ve been a bit more decisive as fans know he can be.
