Manchester United legend Gary Neville has Twitter to give his opinion on Mino Raiola’s recent comments on Paul Pogba’s future at the club.
As reported by the BBC, Raiola has publicly stated Pogba’s intention to leave Old Trafford, claiming that the World Cup winner is not happy with life with the Red Devils.
That may not be a surprise. A player of his quality should be a sure starter, not an off-the-bench player, not that he has proven worthy of being more than that lately.
However, it is neither particularly professional nor appropriate for Raiola to speak this way, nor is it a particularly good time ahead of a great week for Man United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
That seems to be Gary Neville’s main complaint, as revealed on Twitter.
Raiola – Happened many times before. However, surely Paul knew he was making this announcement? If you didn’t know, we should see a quote from you very soon correcting your agent. Finally, doing this before Leipzig and the Men’s Derby is a terrible time for the team. ?

Raiola is moving the ship as much as he can, doing his best to spark interest in his client. Unfortunately for United, that hurts them.
There is only one way this ends.
