Pogba Finally Responds To Souness

With former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness having often been critical of Manchester United superstar Paul Pogba, the Frenchman has now finally responded to the pundit.

Pogba: What My Mother Told Me When I Left Man Utd

The 66-year-old Scotsman has regularly spoken of his distaste for Pogba, criticising the midfielder for aspects on and off the field.

Among other things, Souness has claimed the former Juventus man would be easy to play against and that he has not taken his recovery from injury seriously enough.

The pundit was recently called out on air for criticising Pogba even though he has not been playing, strengthening the belief held by many that a lot of his comments about the United No. 6 have been unwarranted.

When asked about it in a recent interview, the France international insisted he was not familiar with who Souness was, saying he does not pay attention to things pundits say.

"I didn't even know who Souness was," he told UTD Podcast.

"I heard he was a great player and stuff like that. I don't know the face, but the name (I do).

"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'.
