The midfielder’s agent has once again managed to rile the club’s supporters
Although he’s considered as one of the biggest football agents in Europe owing to the players he manages, Mino Raiola has over the years managed to tarnish his reputation with clubs as well.
Its down to his outspoken and petulant nature. Raiola isn’t known to mince words, often lashing out at both clubs and managers to see his relationship break down with a string of parties.
Raiola loves himself an international break, a period where he’s always seen engulfed in interviews and making outlandish statements. And he ensured he was at it once again as he once again talked about Paul Pogba and the Frenchman’s future at Manchester United.
Raiola Rips Into Manchester United
Raiola who had previously talked about Pogba’s desire to quit Manchester United spoke about how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s praise of Pogba since had brought him right. Raiola used the praise to justify his transfer of Pogba to the club, talking about how he was least bothered about conducting business with the Premier League side again.
“I don’t give a f**k if I never do another player with Manchester United. I’m not in their hands. I’m independent. ‘We have only one party that we take care of: our players. And as long as our players like us, you do what you have to do,” Raiola said as he discussed the relationship between himself and the club.
“When Ferguson criticised me, that was my biggest compliment anybody could give me. Ferguson is used to people coming in and, ‘Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Yes, sir. Yes, sir’.
“All I have to say that when Ferguson left Manchester United the club’s owner, by buying back Paul Pogba, told me that I was right. Because I didn’t want to take Paul Pogba away. He didn’t believe in Paul Pogba. So when Ferguson says, ‘I don’t like him’, it’s the biggest compliment that I could have. It’s like saying Sepp Blatter says, ‘I don’t like him’. Fantastic. I don’t care what Ferguson says.”
“With Mr Ferguson or Guardiola, I have this problem — and I think that it is changing now — that we should submit to them because ‘otherwise, tomorrow, you don’t do a player with Manchester United.”
