The Frenchman’s agent has suggested the Manchester United legend “only likes those who obey” after the Scot criticised him in his new book
Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola has hit back at heavy criticism from Sir Alex Ferguson by suggesting the former Manchester United boss doesn’t have a clue what he’s talking about.
The legendary manager, who retired in 2013 after a glittering career at Old Trafford, planted the blame for Pogba’s move to Juventus three years ago at the feet of his agent, Raiola, in his new book.
Raiola has fought back by claiming Ferguson cannot comprehend that the decisions he made were for the benefit of the Frenchman, who left Manchester United on a free transfer in 2012 but is now valued near the €100 million mark.
“Those words don’t describe my work in a negative way,” he told Tuttosport. “I rate them as a proof that I am good at my job.
“I have to do what’s best for my players’ sake. If I had looked only at my immediate gain, I would have kept Pogba in Manchester.
“But I put Pogba’s interests first and we decided to go to Turin. Maybe Ferguson only likes those who obey him. From his quotes, I understand that Ferguson still doesn’t have a clue who Pogba really is.
“Ferguson was an excellent manager, but the greatest managers can be wrong sometimes.”
