Graeme Souness Goes In On Paul Pogba Yet Again
Even in times of self-isolation and no football being on for what feels like forever, Graeme Souness cannot resist going on Paul Pogba.
The former Liverpool midfielder has become more known for his constant criticism for the French midfielder rather than his career as a player and then manager.

It's made for some brilliant memes on Twitter in recent times but Souness' obsession with Pogba isn't restricted his Sky Sports appearances as he has now questioned his attitude in his Sunday Times column.
A reader asked Souness: "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?"
And while Scotsman started his response by praising the Manchester United midfielder, he quickly began to talk negatively of him and said Pogba would be easy to play against.
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."
Prior this dig, Souness launched a rant on Pogba's off the field activities while injured and claimed he no longer wants to play for United.
He told Sky Sports: "Paul Pogba I see him dancing at a wedding, I see him shooting hoops, and just the cynic in me feels he doesn't want to be at United.
"He doesn't want to play for United. How can you not want to play for Man Utd. If that is the case."

Pogba has made just eight appearances this season after suffering with a persistent ankle problem, with his last game coming against Newcastle on Boxing Day.
United's record signing was closing on a return prior to the season being postponed until April due to the coronavirus outbreak.
