Mino Raiola has refused to back down from his comments in December where he said that Paul Pogba was “unhappy” at Manchester United and “has to leave”, calling the backlash “bull****”. Pogba has long been linked with a move away from Old Trafford ever since he returned to United back in 2016.

Speculation has grown over the years due to Raiola’s repeated comments in the media about Pogba’s future.

And his assessment back in December, on the eve eve of a crucial Champions League group game against RB Leipzig, drew backlash once again from fans and pundits.

Gary Neville tweeted at the time: “Raiola – It’s happened many times before . However surely Paul knew he was making this announcement?

“If he wasn’t aware then we should see a quote from him very soon correcting his agent. Finally to do this ahead of Leipzig and the Man Derby is terrible timing for the team.”

United went on to lose against Leipzig and subsequently be knocked out of the Champions League, with Raiola receiving even more criticism for destabilising the Red Devils.

Ever since then, United have enjoyed a strong run of form while Pogba has earned his place back in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting line-up.

And Raiola believes United’s form is evidence that his comments had no bearing whatsoever on them crashing out of the Champions League.

“After that they had the best period of the season so the facts don’t say that,” he told BBC.


“I saw what happened and that’s why in Italy I gave an interview 10 days ago and now I don’t want to talk about it anymore.

“I keep my opinion to myself and my players and the press get my normal answer ‘I don’t know, I don’t talk about [the] market’.

“I just expressed an opinion, I didn’t want to cause a problem. The opinion was a very simple one.

“I don’t think it destabilised anybody because they had a fantastic run, they were first in the league for a period, so that’s all bulls**t.

“You think big players like Paul Pogba – or [Ole Gunnar] Solskjaer, who won everything in his life – get destabilised by what Mino Raiola says? Come on, please.

“But I don’t talk about it any more. It makes life a little bit boring, but it is what it is.”

Pogba has little over a year left on his current United contract with a decision set to be made this summer on his future.

Real Madrid continued to be linked with a move for the midfielder, but Solskjaer has indicated on numerous occasions that he wants Pogba at the club.
