Jamie Carragher admits he misjudged Pogba's ability as a footballer

Carragher admitted his misjudgment when a fan pointed it out on social media.

Comments

Carragher believed Pogba was not even worth the hassle.

He added, "There's an idea that there's one or the other. So if Mourinho goes, you'll see a new Paul Pogba. You won't, I can assure Man United fans, you won't."
