- Paul Pogba has hit back at Roy Keane and Graeme Souness concerning his attitude
- The pundits have been vocal about Pogba's performances for Man United in recent weeks
- Pogba says they are only paid to talk while he is paid to play football on the pitch
Paul Pogba has responded to Roy Keane and Graeme Souness over their criticisms of his performances, stating that "they are paid to say things."
The Manchester United midfielder has so far enjoyed his best season at Old Trafford after earning a place in the Premier League Team of the Year.
But the Frenchman has continued to come under heavy scrutiny concerning his attitude and he was being called lazy after stats revealed he has spent more time walking than any other midfielder.
Sky Sports pundit Souness has been one of the 26-year-old's most vocal critics with the Frenchman continued to be linked to Real Madrid.
United legend Keane also had some harsh words for the World Cup winner when he was on pundit duty in the derby defeat to City.
However, the France international star was recently hailed by his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a key member to the club's future and Pogba revealed he is unaffected by jibes at his form.
The former Juventus midfielder said: "Criticism from British pundits? No worries. They are paid to say things in front of the camera.
"I’m just on the pitch. They can say what they want, they are paid for it. I’m not paid to talk. I get paid to be on the field and fight for my team. That’s all," Pogba told French outlet RMC Sport.

According to reports from Spain last week, United players are openly joking about Pogba moving to Real Madrid and Keane has accused the star of "playing for himself."
Keane had said of Pogba: "I wouldn’t believe a word he says. There's no meaning behind his words. I don’t even think he believes it himself.
"He's talking about being a good teammate. If you want to be a good teammate then you have to run back and defend.
"The guy is a talented boy. But it’s the same things over and over again and the number of times I've seen him where he isn’t running back.
"He's talking about body language and throwing his arms in the air – he's a big problem for United."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku will reportedly be sold by Manchester United at the end of the season for a combined fee of £200million.
Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is understood to be telling people that he is confident his client will be joining Real Madrid in the summer.
