According to quotes from news outlet AFP.com, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has waged a war of words in response to a query surrounding Paul Pogba’s agent, with the Norwegian stating that the midfielder is ‘our player‘ and ‘not Mino’s‘.
Mino Raiola, who represents Pogba as his agent along with other United names such as Jesse Lingard, has been at the centre of discussion over the Frenchman’s reported desire to leave Old Trafford (Manchester Evening News). The Dutch agent was one of the key figures in organising Pogba’s then record-breaking £89m move back to Manchester from Italian giants Juventus in 2016, but after nearly four years back in the Premier League, the World Cup-winning midfielder is apparently yearning for a move away.
In response, Solskjaer has hit back at Raiola, claiming that Pogba is ‘our player‘ (referring to Manchester United) and not just one of Raiola’s many clients.
Will Paul Pogba ever play for Manchester United again?
Taking to Twitter, these United supporters have agreed with Solskjaer’s verdict, slamming Raiola in unison on social media. Find all of their best comments down below.
The club should just make a statement that it will have nothing to do with Raiola’s players from now on. The man is poisonous.

Can’t wait for the Raiola/Pogba era to end. Its just constant distractions. Fair enough you’re not happy for your client, but say it behind a closed door, or at least stop disrupting the season and wait til the summer to speak out. We need to let him go, get back to football.
