Paul Pogba reveals rousing speech that drove France to World Cup win

Paul Pogba reveals rousing speech that drove France to World Cup win

Despite Pogba's fine showing for France throughout the World Cup, Souness made a decision to dismiss the midfielder's "game management" prior to today's World Cup final against Croatia.

Pogba scored France's third goal of the afternoon on the hour-mark, beautifully curling the ball beyond Danijel Subasic from outside the penalty area.

'He showed in this tournament he has it all, the defensive discipline and attacking but he hasn't come together yet in a Manchester United shirt, but [Jose] Mourinho has to unlock this Pogba at United, ' Ferdinand said on BBC.

A summer transfer for the 25-year-old has been mooted, with speculation having built steadily towards the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

Pogba has spent the past two seasons at United, the club that originally sold him to Juventus in 2012.

The Frenchman became a favourite amongst the Cityzens for his social media posts during his injury lay-off and being vocal and supportive in the dressing room as they went on to win the Premier League title. "These are the questions a manager has to work out".

Pogba, for his part, might not have had a great season last time around but he sure has been in excellent form in the World Cup as he has led his France side all the way to the final. His game management is very, very poor, the boy needs help!

"I don't think he will leave at all".

Even Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher joined in, posting a amusing old photo of Souness alongside the caption: "Souey when he see's Pogba has scored!" Pogba's contract with Man Utd runs until 2021.
