Graeme Souness’ Pre-Match Criticism Of Paul Pogba Now Seems Redundant

Graeme Souness’ Pre-Match Criticism Of Paul Pogba Now Seems Redundant

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been critical of Pogba's performance in the British media over the past 12 months.

He also scored a lovely third goal to move the game out of Croatia's reach, before France finally clinched their second World Cup with a 4-2 win.

It certainly didn't help that the midfielder had no goals or assists entering the final.

"Pogba was vast, especially second half".

Juan Mata was part of Spain's World Cup winning squad in 2010, while several former United players have got their hands on the World Cup while at other clubs - Fabien Barthez, Laurent Blanc, Kleberson, Gerard Pique and, as recently as 2014 with Germany, Bastian Schweinsteiger. But now that he's won the World Cup, he will undoubtedly have no end of fun as he heads into a much deserved holiday period.

Pogba has been the subject of criticism since his £89million move to Manchester United from Juventus and failed to live up to the heights expected of him. "He was the talisman of this team".

"When he played at Juventus he was affecting games, maybe United aren't getting the ball to him in the right areas".

"He maybe isn't being put in the right positions at the start of the game".

Highly-rated Porto full-back Diogo Dalot, Shakhtar Donetsk's Brazil global Fred and veteran Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant have all joined United as they chase the Premier League title.

"And this is the manager's job to figure it out", he said.
