Graeme Souness 'canes' Man Utd star Paul Pogba again

Paul Pogba's skill

In what was a frustrating first hour for the Red Devils, they went 1-0 behind thanks to a goal that many believed was offside.

Pogba can definitely improve the tactical and positional areas of his game, as at times he does tend to become attracted to marauding forward when sometimes, like against Arsenal last weekend when his team is two nil up, the best option is sometimes to sit in, and pick your moments to burst forward a little more wisely.

Pogba had the ball by the touchline and nowhere to go yet somehow managed to out-muscle all three players before nutmegging one of them with a stunning flick.

Graeme Souness has slammed Paul Pogba's abilities as a footballer despite the Frenchman's recent superb form for Manchester United that's seen him tipped to be captain of the club in the near future.

United's season has so far hinged on the fitness of Pogba, with their performances plummeting while the 24-year-old was out for seven weeks with a hamstring injury but picking up once he returned to full fitness.

When he is on the ball, there's lots of things to admire.

"Where I question him, whether he'll ever be a top player, is his understanding of the game". I think they'll play Herrera in there I would imagine to get around their midfield and although [Pogba] carries a bigger goal threat, on the other side of the coin, when they're going to be asked to defend and have to be solid, I don't think he does that very well.

"He hasn't got a basic understanding of his position, I can't see that changing", Souness claimed on TV3 in Ireland.

"That is basic stuff you learn in the youth team (positioning)". He's got three goals this year and six assists I think it is - I know he was out injured for a bit - but that's not enough.
