Steven Gerrard blasted Paul Pogba for his performance in UEFA Super Cup final

Pogba has joked he's upset with good friend Antoine Griezmann

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard blasted Paul Pogba for his performance in Manchester United’s European Super Cup defeat to Real Madrid.

“I think he’s been poor,” Gerrard told BT Sport at half time.

“If we’re being brutally honest I think his decision making out there in the first half hasn’t been good. Here he does well cutting in but he has to slide Henrikh Mkhiatryan in for a chance on goal.

“Here he gambles to come out and header the ball away, gets underneath it, it could have been another goal for Real Madrid. Here he is a bit selfish, goes for the shot when I think he could have played it to Mkhitaryan again.

“I think he’s been a bit individual out there rather than thinking of his team-mates in the first 45.”
