Manchester United Fans Are Seething at Graeme Souness Today

Manchester United supporters are absolutely furious with Graeme Souness today after the Sky Sports pundit gave his opinion on Paul Pogba and his overall ability.

After winning countless trophies with United’s bitter rivals Liverpool – including three European Cups – Souness has never exactly been flavour of the month at Old Trafford, but his latest comments on Pogba really haven’t gone down well.

Pogba has been in brilliant form for United this season but Souness is having none of it, and even questioned the Frenchman’s basic understanding of being able to play in central midfield.

Speaking on TV3 during United’s 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow last night, via the Daily Mail, Souness said: “When he is on the ball, there’s lots of things to admire. He’s powerful, he’s got good technique, he can wrong foot people, he can ping the ball.

“This isn’t me being an ex-Liverpool player caning a Man United player. I thought the same when he was a Juventus player.

“That is basic stuff you learn in the youth team. He’s 24 years old if he’s not got it now when is he gonna get it?

“He hasn’t taken a big game by the scruff of the neck and dominated it. He hasn’t got a basic understanding of his position, I can’t see that changing.”

Of course, United fans have been replying to Souness today on social media and you can probably imagine their tone:

What do you think of Souness’s comments on Pogba, and the reaction from supporters?
