Sir Alex calls Pogba agent Mino Raiola a ‘s***bag’

Ferguson and Raiola clashed over Pogba's contract

Former manager and Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed his true feelings regarding Paul Pogba’s infamous agent, Mino Raiola.

Mino Raiola clashed with the then United boss Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2012, after Paul Pogba angled for a move away from Old Trafford with his agent’s backing.

Sir Alex was recently giving a motivational talk to rugby side Sale Sharks, when the subject of Pogba’s notorious exit from the club was brought to attention.

The French midfielder was transferred on a free to Juventus after Ferguson was unwilling to meet his agent’s demands, with United left humbled when they sealed Pogba’s return for a record £89 million last summer.

‘Paul Pogba? He had a bad agent. A s***bag. Paul Pogba was well known to us. We knew he was a good player. He’s still a good player. We offered him the best contract’, the 75-year-old said.

It is not the first time the Red Devils legend has aired his views about the representative in question: ‘There are one or two football agents I simply do not like, and Mino Raiola is one of them’, he wrote in his autobiography.
