Your time at Man Utd was mitigated failure – Liverpool legend slams Pogba
Graeme Souness, a former player for Liverpool, has criticized Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, claiming that the player's time at Manchester United was a success that was somewhat mitigated.
In 2016, Pogba moved from Juventus to Man United for a then-record sum of €105 million.
The France international had a promising beginning to his second stint at Old Trafford, but later had a falling-out with the Red Devils.
Ultimately, Pogba rejoined Juventus after leaving Man United as a free agent at the conclusion of the previous campaign.
I think Manchester United are a fantastic football club. They really are, if not the biggest in the world, glamorous and most successful, Souness said on talkSPORT in reference to Pogba's time at Man United. Can I just call this out? Who was the first person to call out Pogba as a pudding? I rest my case.
I can remember the first time I saw him. It was the semi-final of the Champions League, Juve vs Real Madrid. I was with Jamie Redknapp and Thierry [Henry]. Jamie was raving about this young midfielder; wait till you see him.
“And I came away from the game thinking, ‘he’s not for me’. He's never been, and I think I’ve been proved right that his time at Manchester United is a mitigated failure. "
