Once again, in bizarre fashion Graeme Souness has been absolutely ruthless in his assessment of Manchester United star Paul Pogba.
The Frenchman can’t seem to escape from being scrutinised by the pundit who did not hold back by any means before the club faced Newcastle.
United ended up losing the match 1-0 in shocking fashion with Pogba playing a part from the start of the match although he was later substituted in the second half.
Some fans were concerned with the midfielder’s fitness as he seemed to pick up a knock in the pre-match routine and somewhat hobbled off after the game concluded.
Jose Mourinho denied claims of injury to Paul who wasn’t at his best against the lively home side and supporters can expect Souness to criticise him once more.
Graeme Souness has an obsession with Pogba: “He is capable of great things, but a country mile from being a great player due to his inability to grasp the responsibility that comes with being a centre mid. He plays like a schoolboy running after the ball in the playground." #mufc pic.twitter.com/OU71avQFCm

Paul Pogba has been in the limelight of late as critics, pundits, former players and fans all try to assess how to get the best out of him.
There’s no denying the former Juventus man’s ability but it might be fair to say he hasn’t been at his utmost best since joining the Red Devils.
Many supporters have grown frustrated with Mourinho’s insistence on playing Pogba in a double pivot 4-2-3-1 formation as it appears to restrict him.
Fans hope to see the midfielder given the freedom to express himself in a 4-3-3 formation as they witnessed in the match against Everton where he excelled.
Juventus also employed a three man midfield to get the best out of Paul, unshackling him and leaving the defensive work to the two other midfielders.
