Graeme Souness: 'Paul Pogba would be a doddle to play against'

:Headline: Graeme Souness: 'Paul Pogba would be a doddle to play against':
Liverpool legend Graeme Souness launches a fresh attack on Paul Pogba, claiming that the Manchester United midfielder would be "an absolute doddle to play against".

Former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness has launched a fresh criticism of Manchester United's Paul Pogba, claiming that the Frenchman would be a "doddle to play against".

Souness has been a regular and vocal critic of Pogba's attitude since his return to Old Trafford in 2016, repeatedly questioning his off-field antics and desire to make the most out of his ability at United.

The 66-year-old won three European Cups and five top-flight titles during his time as a Liverpool player and, when asked about his "disdain" for Pogba, Souness suggested that he would have enjoyed coming up against the World Cup winner.

"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," Souness told The Times.

"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."

Pogba has made just eight appearances across all competitions this season, having missed large chunks of the campaign through injury. body check tags ::
