Paul Pogba would be an "absolute doddle" to play against because of his attitude.

That's the opinion of Liverpool legend Graeme Souness, who has launched a fresh rant against Manchester United's World Cup-winning midfielder Pogba.

Souness doesn't pull any punches when providing analysis as a pundit on Sky Sports, and in recent years has made Pogba the subject of more than a few rants.

The Scot was given the opportunity to comment on his supposed dislike for the United star by readers of the Sunday Times, with one asking: "Much has been made of your apparent disdain for Paul Pogba. Is this a misconception?

"Should you have been his team-mate, what words of advice do you feel that you would have offered him?"

Souness responded: "Pogba has absolutely everything to be a top player - great athleticism, super technique - but his attitude to the game is the polar opposite of mine.

"He goes out with one thought in his mind: 'I'm going to show everyone how clever I am today and be the star of the show.'

"My attitude, the way I was taught, was: 'Go out and work harder than the guy you're in against and see where that takes you.' He'd be an absolute doddle to play against."
