Mino Raiola has labelled Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville a “big know-how” after the former Manchester United player urged the club to stop dealing with the agent.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made a comment about the future of Paul Pogba ahead of Man Utd’s 2-0 victory over Chelsea, he said: “Paul is our player and not Mino’s”.

To which Pogba’s agent Raiola hit back straight away on social media, he responded: “Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer’s property, Paul is Paul Pogba’s. You cannot own a human being already for a long time in the UK or anywhere else.

“I hope Solskjaer do[sic] not want to suggest that Paul is his prisoner.”

And on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Neville told Man Utd to stop dealing with Raiola in any future negotiations for players.


Those comments have not gone down well with Raiola with the Dutch football agent claiming he isn’t bothered by anything Neville says.

“Gary Neville has such a big know-how of football that I’m surprised his Salford City are not in the Premier League already,” Raiola told talkSPORT.

“He should be on the board of directors of United and ask them for a job, I don’t care what he says.”

On Solskjaer’s comments, Raiola added: “The outcome was good for Man United [vs Chelsea[ so maybe I should do it more often.

“In all seriousness, I thought what Solskjaer said was out of line. He took parts of sentences of an interview of mine, and acted a little bit offended that I was offering Paul Pogba to other clubs without permission.

“If you read the whole interview I was asked if Paul would fancy Italy, and I said Italy is a second home, but that is not the case now as he is concentrated on Manchester United and getting back in the team as soon as possible and to make a great end of the season.”
