The Man United midfielder has come in for plenty of criticism from the outspoken Scot, however, has been told to use it positively as an alternative than react.
Paul Pogba may additionally find that he becomes a better player for finding out who Graeme Souness is, says Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler, with the Manchester United midfielder, advised to reply positively to the criticism that has come his way, instead than bite back at it.
The France international has found himself caught up in hostility of words with the outspoken Scot.
Ex-Liverpool captain Souness has made no secret of the fact that he considers Pogba to have performed well beneath his best since securing an £89 million ($111m) return to Old Trafford in the summer of 2016.
He is far from the only one to have made that suggestion, however, has taken to singling out a World Cup winner on a regular basis.
Pogba has not taken the bait, for the most part, however lately claimed to have been unaware of who Souness was when he arrived in England.
Fowler believes the 27-year-old should be making a point of checking out what a man with an enviable medal collection was once capable of at the peak of his powers, with it possible that his personal game will benefit if actions start speaking louder than words.
The ex-Liverpool striker informed The Mirror: “Graeme Souness is one of the best midfielders ever to play football.
He additionally happens to have been a pretty respectable manager and is now a hugely respected television pundit.
“He isn’t afraid to say what he definitely thinks when asked to give an opinion on something and everything he sees through eyes that have witnessed pretty much all in the game over the previous six decades.
So if anyone is certified to talk about Paul Pogba and what the Frenchman needs to do to become a better player, then it’s Souey.
“My advice to Paul would be to pay attention to what he’s got to say and then ask yourself if he’s got a point. You might just end up becoming better for it.
“I was disappointed to hear the Manchester United midfielder slap down my former Liverpool boss by saying he doesn’t even recognize who the outspoken Scottish man in the studio is.
If he doesn’t then possibly he should do a bit of background. He’d find out that this is a man who won 5 league titles and three European Cups with Liverpool.”
Fowler added: “Souey has walked the walk. Now he’s talking the talk.
“I know how it feels to be criticized in the media. It isn’t supposed to be personal, however, it’s a rotten experience when someone is calling you out in front of hundreds of thousands of people. Like it or not, it comes with the territory of the game.
I can guarantee Pogba that when Graeme is assessing his performances in the TV studio he will be doing it through cold, calculating eyes.
“He will see a player who is vastly talented, a player who has lifted football’s ultimate prize, but, ultimately, a footballer who hasn’t been fulfilling his potential when wearing a United shirt. And that will frustrate the hell out of Graeme Souness.
“What is encouraging is that Pogba is obviously aware of his remarks that he has something to prove. Hopefully, when we return to some kind of normality, he will show us all that he can do.”
