The Frenchman has struggled to display his qualities since returning to Old Trafford from Juventus in a move worth £89million in 2016.
Pogba’s future in Manchester has also been thrown into doubt amid concerns over his relationship with Mourinho after being left on the bench and substituted on a number of occasions during a disappointing season.
Roy Keane believes Jose Mourinho must recruit some influential players to help Paul Pogba
Keane, who made 480 appearances and captained United for several years, believes the 25-year-old simply needs some more experienced and senior team-mates around him.
‘I like him, I think he’s a good player, a good kid,’ Keane said. ‘He probably needs better help around him, good influences around the training ground.
‘I was the luckiest man on the planet when I was a player, I always had good lads around me, senior players who led by example. Pogba probably doesn’t have that at United.
‘He’s a good player. Would he feel he could have had a better season? Probably.
‘Usually the good players are quite critical of themselves. When you play for Man United and you don’t win a trophy you probably would be critical of yourself.’

Pogba’s future has also been thrown into doubt amid worry over his relationship with Mourinho
Reports in Italy suggest Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri could be targeting a sensational re-union with Pogba this summer.
The France international won four consecutive Italian titles and the Coppa Italia on two occasions, before deciding to seal a return to Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho said at the start of May that he feels Pogba will be at Manchester United next season despite the duo failing to see eye-to-eye in recent months.
But Pogba said earlier this week: ‘We are never sure of anything but contractually it’s sure, yes.’
