In a recent turn of events, Graeme Souness has once again expressed his disapproval of Paul Pogba’s demeanor during the latter’s tenure at Manchester United. Pogba, a World Cup champion, rejoined the Red Devils in 2019 for a hefty fee of approximately £89 million from Juventus. Despite high hopes, Pogba’s time at Old Trafford was marred by criticism over his attitude, with his most notable performances occurring during his stints with the French national team.

Pogba’s undeniable talent was often overshadowed by questions surrounding his motivation, leading to a free transfer back to Juventus upon the conclusion of his contract with Manchester United in 2022. However, his return to the Italian club has been fraught with challenges, including a lengthy absence due to injury and a recent four-year suspension from football following a positive test for testosterone.

Souness, a long-standing critic of Pogba, has stated that while he finds no joy in Pogba’s ban, he remains frustrated by what he perceives as wasted potential. Souness shared with The Telegraph his belief that Pogba’s early World Cup victory may have led to complacency, hindering his willingness to put in the necessary effort to excel. According to Souness, Pogba’s focus on flair over hard work made him an easy opponent on the pitch.

Despite the unfortunate circumstances, Souness holds firm to his view that Pogba had the makings of a legendary midfielder, but will instead be remembered for his suspension and unfulfilled promise.
