Liverpool legend slams ‘arrogant’ Pogba

Former Liverpool midfielder Graeme Souness has become the latest high-profile ex-pro to have a pop at Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

The 25-year-old World Cup winner has divided opinion amongst fans and pundits since his £89 million return to Old Trafford from Juventus in 2016.

Souness has been one of Pogba’s most vocal critics in recent years and he once again held no punches recently by labelling the midfielder arrogant and even encouraged Manchester United to sell their record signing.

“I’m not happy with Pogba, I think he’s arrogant, he’s aloof,’’ Souness told TalkSport.

“The way he struts about, if he was playing eight-out-of-ten every week then I’d say, ‘well he’s got a point’, but he doesn’t!

“You look at Kevin de Bruyne and David Silva – week-in, week-out they are brilliant for City – but this guy comes along, and there’s no doubting his ability, but something is just not right.

“I think Jose is right to say, ‘look, you’re annoying the dressing room, you’re annoying me, if you don’t like it, see you later’.

“It’s best to get rid and I think that may strengthen Man United.”
