Mino Raiola has hit out at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over comments he made about Paul Pogba recently and launched into a scathing attack on the Manchester United manager.
Pogba’s future at Old Trafford is up in the air, with the Frenchman refusing to sign an extension on his contract – which expires in 2021 – and Raiola teasing the possibility of a return to former club Juventus.
Solskjaer was asked about both Pogba and Raiola at his most recent press conference and replied: ‘Paul is our player and not Mino’s. I haven’t sat down and told Paul to tell his agent what to say. I’ve not spoken to Mino, that’s for sure.’But Raiola has responded angrily to his choice of words, suggesting Pogba was being treated like a ‘prisoner’, and took a pop at under-pressure Solskjaer by saying he has more important things to worry about. ‘Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer’s property, Paul is Paul Pogba’s,’ Raiola wrote on social media on Monday evening.
‘You cannot own a human being already for a long time in the UK or anywhere else. I hope Solskjaer do [sic] not want to suggest that Paul is his prisoner. But before Solskjaer makes comments about things I say he should inform himself better about the content of what has been said. I am a free citizen who can think and express my thoughts. Until now I was maybe too nice to him.’
He continued: ‘Solskjaer should just remember things that he said in the summer to Paul. I think Solskjaer may be frustrated for different reasons and is now mixing up some issues. I think that Solskjaer has other things to worry about. At least if I was him I would.’Photo Credit: Getty
