Liverpool legend, Graeme Souness, has hit out at Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, insisting that the player’s time at Manchester United was a mitigated failure.
Pogba joined Man United from Juventus for a then-world-record fee of €105 million in 2016.
Despite a good start to his second spell at Old Trafford, the France international later fell out with the Red Devils.
Pogba eventually left Man United as a free agent at the end of last season and re-joined Juventus.
Reflecting on Pogba’s time at Man United, Souness said on talkSPORT, “I think Manchester United are a fantastic football club, they really are, one of if not the biggest in the world, glamorous and most successful. 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’. Never has been and I think I’ve been proved right and his time at Manchester United is a mitigated failure.”
