Paul Pogba Finally Responds To Persistent Criticism From Graeme Souness

Paul Pogba Finally Responds To Persistent Criticism From Graeme Souness

Paul Pogba has finally responded to the criticism he has received from Graeme Souness.

The former Liverpool midfielder has developed quite the disdain for the Frenchman, regularly ripping into him whether it's in the Sky Sports studio or in his newspaper columns.

Souness has become more known for his obsession with Pogba than his own successful playing career and it's made for some brilliant memes on Twitter.

Manchester United's record signing has now hit back and claimed he didn't have any idea who the three-time European Cup winner was.

"I didn't even know who he was, really," Pogba told the United podcast when asked about Souness.

`'I know the face but the name [no]. Like I said I'm not someone that watches a lot of [punditry], I watch a lot of football but I don't stay after the game to listen to what they say about 'Why they did this' or 'why they did that'. I like to focus on football."

Souness has launched many rants on Pogba, even slamming his off the field activities while he's been injured and looking to come back to full fitness after being restricted to just eight appearances this term.

Even in isolation, the Scot went in on the former Juventus man again by insisting he would be "an absolute doddle to play against".

Earlier on the podcast, Pogba stated that he does not pay attention to negative comments but is curious to know the root of his critics' issue with him.

He said: "One day maybe I will meet them [the critics] and ask them because I really want to know why. I am doing my recovery, I can be somewhere else and I hear something but i'm just doing my recovery, you know?'

"If they want to speak they are allowed to speak, it's their job to speak. I am used to it now. I am really used to it, it doesn't bother me. It's good to hear good stuff instead of bad stuff but when you play football, you know yourself. It's what your manager and team-mates want, the rest is just talk. It's selling stuff I think."
