Rio Ferdinand defends Paul Pogba over Graeme Souness criticism


Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand thinks that Paul Pogba did not deliberately imply to disrespect Graeme Souness by declaring that he did not understand who he was.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has actually declared that Paul Pogba did not deliberately disrespect Graeme Souness by stating that he did not understand who the Liverpool legend was.

Pogba’s remarks was available in reaction to routine criticism by Souness while performing his punditry responsibilities, and triggered the Scot to strike back by challenging him to “put your medals on the table”.

Nevertheless, Ferdinand thinks that the United midfielder truly did not understand about Souness’s playing profession and was not attempting to be rude.

” For Paul Pogba to state he does not understand who [Souness] is or would not understand him as a footballer, I think that. It’s not rude, he does not understand him,” Ferdinand stated on The Gorgeous Game podcast.

” As great a player as Souness was– he was a top player, among the very best. If you were speaking about the very best British midfielders we have actually produced, he remains in the discussion, 100%, Graeme Souness was a great player.

“But Paul Pogba doesn’t know him. Simple as that, and that’s the difference of generations. I don’t think it’s disrespectful.”

Pogba has actually been restricted to simply 8 appearances throughout all competitions this season.
