Two pundits ‘clash’ over comment on Paul Pogba



Man United hero Paul Ince has blasted another pundit, Graeme Souness for his comments about Paul Pogba.

The France international impressed on Saturday as Leeds were battered 5-1 at Old Trafford. He handed four assists but the former Liverpool star failed to dish out praise.

It has been suggested that the contract controversies of the former Juventus midfielder is the reason why Graeme Souness refused Paul Pogba some praise.

This is as the France international is yet to sign a new deal with Man United. It is feared he could leave as a a free player next summer window.

When asked to comment on Paul Pogba’s performance, Souness said “We expect that from a £100m man,” he said dismissively when Micah Richards had mentioned his assists haul.
“I was going to get round to the point that they have spent £70m on Sancho.

“Maybe that might be something they look back on and think ‘did we need to spend that money?’. Because that boy (Greenwood), is a player, he’s a finisher.

“I think he’s going to be a top player.”

Ince, speaking to The United Stand, gave his reaction to Souness – insisting his criticism was unnecessary.

“It’s a new season, a new start, it’s a new Manchester United,” he said.

“He was outstanding. Just leave it at that.

“We don’t need Graeme Souness to start trying to slaughter Pogba when he’s been outstanding. I don’t get it.

“Pogba only thought about leaving because he didn’t see Man United competing with the top sides. That’s understandable, it’s like Harry Kane at Tottenham.

“Kane wants to leave because he wants to win trophies.”

Howbeit, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is positive that Paul Pogba will be convinced to stay at the club after disclosing that talks are still on but the Red Devils face the risk of losing him for free.

For Liverpool, they reached successive Champions League finals in 2018 and 2019 and would be eager to challenge for another this seasonn.

Danny Murphy insists Manchester City are one of the favorites as with Chelsea, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Asked which teams he expects to challenge for the Champions League title, Murphy told MailSport:

“I personally think the winners will come from one of six – Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and PSG.

Why Man Utd may not win trophy



Rio Ferdinand, has said the Manchester United inexperience could stop themfrom winning the Champions League this season.

Man United manager has brought in Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane this summer, as he seeks to win his first title at Old Trafford.

However, the team have not won any silverware since the Europa League final in 2017.

Their rivals, Liverpool and Chelsea have won both the Premier League and Champions League while Manchester City have won last season’s fina, their third league title in four years under experienced coach Pep Guardiola.

“I think Man United’s not a problem, but where they’re behind the other three English teams, is the experience of winning things.

“All the other three English teams have won things, whether it be the Champions League or the Premier League. Man United have yet to do that as this group.

“That’s where they are lacking, and that’s where they’ve got to play catch up and they’ve got to do that this season. The transfer window for them has been impeccable, but that’s got to translate into trophies,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.

Manchester United began their Champions League campaign with a shock loss to Young Boys.

The Red Devil took the lead when Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal since he returned to Old Trafford.

Later on, the game turned around after Aaron Wan-Bissaka received a straight red card for his challenge on Christopher Martins.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has lay blames on his team following a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday.

The Switzerland side eventually drew level, thanks to Moumi Ngameleu’s strike.

The match should have been a draw but Lingard tried to find David de Gea but his pass found Theoson Siebatcheu.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seriously warned his squad that they must learn from their mistakes if they are to avoid an early exit from the championship competition.

“A lack of concentration, you make a mistake and you get done. We did that last year, conceding two sloppy counter-attacks against Basaksehir and lost that game in the last seconds today.

“So we know we’ve given ourselves a more difficult task. We did last year when everyone thought we were through after two games.

“You need 10 or 12 points: win your home games and one away from home. We’ve lost the opportunity to get three points, but we’ve got two home games next and got to focus on those two,” Solskjaer said after the game.
