Manchester United manager sends stern warning to Mino Raiola

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer no longer wants to talk about Paul Pogba in all of his press conferences.

It’s true to a certain extent that the Manchester United manager hasn’t provided clear updates regarding the extent of Pogba’s injuries and it has led journalists to word their questions differently to get to the root of the problem.

However, most of the credit for fuelling the unnecessary speculations goes to the big mouth of Mino Raiola, who just can’t shut himself up. Everyone knows how much Raiola loves the sound of his own voice and had recently criticised Manchester United’s management for how they have handled Paul Pogba as a player.

Solskjaer says Raiola shouldn’t have spoken out about United but didn’t hit back at Pogba’s agent. He did, however, send a warning to all agents about the ownership of players, as BBC Sport reporter Simon Stone picks up on below via Twitter:

Solskjaer probably feels that by speaking about MUFC and Pogba in such a way, Raiola is bringing negative attention to the situation. After all, he’s the one that has to deal with the press on a weekly basis. Raiola chooses to do so whenever it suits him.

  1. Raiolas main objective is to upset his clients so they ask for transfers or become unsettled so they dont play well and clubs transfer them. This is the only way Raiola makes his money from signing on fees.If a player is happy or the club is happy then Raiola doesnt get any money.
    Sir Alex summed it up about Raiola when he said ” I wanted to drag the slimy slug over the desk and punch him” that was over Pogba when he was due to sign a contract the first time. United offered him the same deal the rest of the academy players were on
    Raiola demanded more Sir Alex wouldnt break the wage structure. So he signed for Juventus.
