Ferguson labels Raiola ‘a sh*tbag’ over Pogba deal

Sir Alex Ferguson has delightfully called Mino Raiola “a sh*tbag” for his actions in the deal which saw Manchester United lose Paul Pogba.

Pogba returned to United in a world-record move for £89.3million last summer, having left the club four years prior.

The midfielder departed as a free agent to join Juventus upon the expiration of his Old Trafford contract in 2012.

Ferguson wrote in his autobiography that he blamed Raiola for the club losing Pogba on a free transfer, while the agent has denied any ill feeling between the two parties.

It has also been claimed that Pogba was forced to tears “over the way he was treated” by Ferguson, who did not afford him the game time he craved as a teenager.

During a talk with rugby team Sale Sharks, Ferguson was filmed discussing the situation.

Asked on his thoughts about Pogba by Sale player Brian Mujati, Ferguson issued a frank reply.

“Paul Pogba? He had a bad agent. A sh*tbag,” he said.

“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…” he added, before the video was cut off.
