Dugarry launches diatribe against Pogba and Griezmann
The former French striker ranted about Pogba's latest radio show with Canal in which he speaks about his life in the build-up to the World Cup.
Christophe Dugarry is one of the most critical voices on French sports radio. His latest targets were Antoine Griezmann for an interview they did last Sunday on that was aired on Canal Football Club on Canal+ France.
The Manchester United player signed a contract with Canal to record a series of reports about his life in the months leading up to the World Cup. It will be called Pogba Mondial. The 'Pogsérie'. Dugarry is not a fan of the latest installment in which Pogba speaks with Atlético Madrid players, Griezmann, and he was particularly with the protagonist, Pogba.
"They are not serious. Pogba and Griezmann are leaders. They are considered big players and they put as an example. But when you lose, you sign a contract with Canal to sell these stupidities. You are not starting for Manchester United, just just lost a game with the France national team. You send out this program that doesn't make sense. You have just lost. That says to us that you are not concentrated. You are not going well and you make us your Pogséries. What craziness is that?" said Dugarry who didn't pull any punches.
"You just lost 2-3 against the Colombians and you were missing for an hour. "At some point, is there not someone in your group to say to you to 'concentrate on your game, on your profession, in what you have to do, you have a whole country behind you'? A country that wants to do well in the World Cup, and you make these stupid things for us. You are Pogba, you are Griezmann, third in the last Balon d'Or. You are an important person on this team. The rest put confidence in progressing with these players. But Pogba and Griezmann don't know it. They are at any time, a rapper, the next they are producers, the next they are dancers, another time they are footballers, another time basketball players. Griezmann has said that he would prefer to play basketball. We are three months from the World Cup, concentrate yourself, it's up to you show us the way," he continued.
