Former Liverpool player Graeme Souness has told Paul Pogba to put his medals on the table after the Manchester United star claimed he didn’t know who the Sky Sports pundit was.
Souness has been one of the Frenchman’s fiercest critics since he returned to England in 2016 and has frequently condemned his behaviour both on and off-the-field.
And after the midfielder claimed he still had no idea what the Scot looked like four years later, Souness has issued a withering response.
“I am happy with it. The oldest thing in football comes to mind – put your medals on the table,” he said on Sky Sports on Tuesday morning.
The Frenchman has proven to be immune to criticism from Souness, and made headlines for his comments about Souness, who lifted three European Cups and three league titles at Liverpool.
“I didn’t even know who [Souness] was,” Pogba said to UTD Podcast.
“I heard he was a great player and stuff like that. I don’t know the face but the name [I do]. Like I said I’m not someone that watches a lot of [punditry], I watch a lot of football but I don’t stay after the game to listen to what they say about ‘Why they did this’ or ‘why they did that’.
One of Souness’ most recent jabs at Pogba came in March when the Frenchman was filmed dancing at his brother’s wedding while supposedly out injured.
Souness claimed his actions showed he doesn’t want to play for United and he claimed he expected Pogba to make a return to full fitness shortly before the now postponed Euro 2020, which has since been postponed.
