The Mariners boss is incensed with reports suggesting Pouton will have to retire with his knee injury.
Pouton was forced to have knee surgery after limping out of the club's pre-season clash with Lincoln City, but Groves says that retirement rumours have no foundation whatsoever.
"These are the kind of rumours that can damage player's careers," said Groves.
"This rumour is totally unfounded and Alan has done everything that the specialist has told him to do."
