Fergie blames agent for Pogba’s Man United exit – and he hits back

first_img Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola The agent of Paul Pogba has hit back at claims by former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson that he was to blame for the midfielder leaving Old Trafford.The Frenchman left the English giants in 2012 for Juventus, where he has since won three Serie A titles.United have often been criticised for letting the 22-year-old go after watching him develop into one of the world’s best players.In Sir Alex’s new book, Leading, the Scotsman claims it was Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola who caused the move.However, Raiola has now rubbished those remarks and instead argued that Sir Alex made a mistake.“Those words don’t describe my work in a negative way. I rate them as a proof that I am good at my job,” Raiola told Tuttosport.“I have to do what’s best for my player’s 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.” 1last_img
