Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola says the careers of football greats like Diego, Maradona, Pele and Paolo Maldini would have been ruined if they had played for Manchester United.
Raiola stated this after slamming the club’s treatment of Pogba saying he will not take any of his players to the Premier League club again.
Raiola had told Sky Sports UK this week that Pogba was happy to stay at United.
But in an interview with Italian newspaper La Repubblica, the Italian-born Dutch super-agent blasted the club for the way they have been treating the 2018 World Cup winner.
“I wouldn’t bring anyone there now,” he said. “They’d also ruin Maradona, Pele and Maldini. Paul needs a team and club like the Juventus team he played in.”
Another of Raiola’s clients Erling Haaland has this week joined Borussia Dortmund instead of Manchester United.
The agent admitted he was not happy the situation with Moise Kean at Everton but insisted new coach Carlo Ancelotti will help the Italian teenager.
“ Everton aren’t happy with him, rather they’re absolutely delighted. They know that it’s only a matter of time with him because in the Premier League, the technical and physical demands are higher and Serie A doesn’t prepare you enough.
“In this sense, Kean is like Balotelli, such a precocious talent who has skipped stages of his development but must recover because there are gaps.
“I have a stack of requests for him on my desk, but Everton have no intention of selling him or him of leaving.”
And on Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return to AC Milan from MLS, he said: “I couldn’t allow his last stage to be in Los Angeles,” he said. “These six months will be like the last tour of Queen, a long tribute: it had to be done at San Siro.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
