Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness has been known to criticise Paul Pogba in the past, but many think the former Liverpool manager has gone too far this time.
Ahead of Chelsea's game against Manchester United on Saturday afternoon, the 65-year-old ripped into Pogba while he was warming up with his teammates.
Even fellow pundit Jamie Redknapp looked to strongly disagree with his opinions.

Jamie Redknapp of all people shutting Graeme Souness' criticism of Paul Pogba down. His agenda against Paul is unhealthy. Properly obsessed. #mufc

Souness says he 'expected so much more' from the Frenchman, while saying he has everything it takes to be a 'top top' player but hasn't shown it since his big money move.
He also suggested that Pogba didn't show up at the 2018 World Cup, despite being a pivotal figure throughout the tournament.
Redknapp's reaction says it all, really. Thoughts on the below Sky footage? Is the Scotsman right on this occasion?
"It's unfair to say you're not seeing it, you saw it in the World Cup." :earth_africa::trophy:
Things are getting heated pitchside, where Paul Pogba is the topic of conversation...:fire::eyes:

This isn't the first time Souness has slated Pogba. Despite his Man of the Match performance against Young Boys last month, Souness couldn't help himself and once again criticised Pogba.
Writing for his Paddy Power blog the Scotsman said:
"With Pogba, it's all about him and his game. He's not going to stop me, he lets you play, and that's one of the criticisms. Having the ball is only half of the game. A big part of being a top player, as he aspires to be, is you have to stop the guy you're up against.
"You can't pick and choose when you want to be bang at it.
"I'm a bit like I'd imagine Mourinho is, where you see someone who's got so much talent, but not making the most of it.
"There's a player in there, but I don't think he's getting the most out of himself.
"I think he has to change. The guy who works with him every day is not seeing eye-to-eye with him, so he's happy with him. I imagine he'd see it exactly the same way that I would: you've got a young man who's got the potential to be the very best of his type in the game, but right now it's not happening for him.
"With him, he needs to sit down and look at himself if he wants to get where he wants to be."
Souness asked about Pogba's role today. Ignores question & goes on a rant about Pogba's price tag & how he's not progressed. When Redknapp tries to change the subject he shouts him down & claims Pogba didn't impress during the WC. He's unhinged

Souness reckons Pogba didn't perform at the World Cup.
I think he came third in player of the tournament?

Jamie Redknapp, legend. Someone finally standing up to Graeme Souness on live TV.

Paul Pogba could score a hat-trick against Chelsea this afternoon and Graeme Souness would manage to find something wrong with his performance.
