Swede icon praises Pogba after World Cup final display

‘Shark Team’ chief Benjamin Mendy wins World Cup with France after Man City success

France clinched their second title with a 4-2 title win over Croatia on Sunday in Moscow, Pogba netting the third goal as Macron cut an animated figure in the stands.

Only featured once in the World Cup in France's dire goalless draw against Denmark, Mendy will not start in the final against Croatia as Les Blues look to add another star above their badge.

"He played football we have never seen him play, way beyond what he has ever done at Manchester United", he told 2fm's Game On programme.

Pogba has been accused of failing to justify his £89.3 million transfer fee over the past couple of years but the Old Trafford faithful have stuck by him through thick and thin. "These are the questions a manager has to work out".

The 65-year-old has made no secret of the fact he's not Pogba's biggest fan and, at times, the criticism from the Scot has been way over the top.

"I've been a critic of his back in the United Kingdom and I wouldn't back off the things I've said about him, but I see a different Paul Pogba in this competition", Souness added.

On the heels of winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup with France, midfielder Paul Pogba is facing the possibility of leaving Manchester United. But now that he's won the World Cup, he will undoubtedly have no end of fun as he heads into a much deserved holiday period. "I think he's indisciplined, I think that's the kindest thing I can say about him". Pogba's contract with Man Utd runs until 2021.
