PAUL POGBA would have been a “doddle” to play against, according to long term critic Graeme Souness.
The ex-Liverpool defender turned pundit took yet another swipe at Manchester United’s World Cup winning midfielder and claimed his own approach to football was the “polar opposite” to Pogba’s.
“Should you have been his team-mate, what words of advice do you feel that you would have offered him?”
And in typical Souness fashion, he 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.”
An ankle injury has limited Pogba just eight games in all competitions so far this campaign.
The Frenchman spent some of his rehabilitation time away from Carrington in Dubai and Miami which did not go down well with some United fans.
But Souness still remains the 27-year-old’s biggest critic with this latest addition to his Pogba-bashing repertoire.
And before this season had even started the 66-year-old told the world he would not have wanted Pogba in the dressing room with him.
