Graeme Souness has claimed it would be “an absolute doddle” to play against Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba in a fresh rant at the France international.
Souness was involved in a Q&A with the Sunday Times readers with one asking him about his apparent “disdain” for Pogba. The reader asks: “Much has been made of your apparent disdain for Paul Pogba. Is this a misconception? Should you have been his team-mate, what words of advice do you feel that you would have offered him?”
To which Souness replied: “Pogba has absolutely everything to be a top player – great athleticism, super technique – but his attitude to the game is the polar opposite of mine.
“He goes out with one thought in his mind: ‘I’m going to show everyone how clever I am today and be the star of the show.’
“My attitude, the way I was taught, was: ‘Go out and work harder than the guy you’re in against and see where that takes you.’ He’d be an absolute doddle to play against.”
