I would be lying if I said that Paul Pogba’s behaviour, or that of his agent Mino Raiola, hasn’t irked me in the past. And there’s been times I think Graeme Souness has been right about the Manchester United midfielder.
But there was more to Sky Sports’ coverage of Super Sunday, with Micah Richards making the valid point that there’s an unfair bias when it comes to Harry Kane and Pogba.
The Tottenham striker used an interview with Gary Neville on a golf course to drop the biggest hint yet that he wanted out of the London club, and Man City appear to be the only club pursuing that deal at the moment, as per the Manchester Evening News.
Many – including Micah Richards – have been bemused by the reaction in the media in comparison to Paul Pogba, who has never publicly stated that he wants to leave United.

It’s hard to disagree with Richards here, even though Pogba is not committing to his club and could leave on a free transfer in 11-months, but you can tell Souness just hates Pogba.
City’s former defender really stands up for the Frenchman here and Souness states that he has enough of talking about United.
The argument, however, is actually between Richards and Neville.
Neville has made his admiration for Kane no secret in the past.
