Pogba’s agent creates a stir after hitting out at Fergie, reminding him why the Frenchman ‘chose’ Man United.

Mino Raiola is not short of controversy.

This time by taking a subtle dig at former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

In an interview with SkySports, the football agent reminded Sir Alex that Paul Pogba “chose” the Red Devils.

“A lot of people did not think he would have gone back to Manchester United, people tend to forget that, people tend to imagine that United was the only club he could have signed for. That was not the case. He chose Manchester United. Maybe Ferguson did not like that but he chose Manchester United.”

Raiola also confirmed his client Paul Pogba could leave United at the end of the season. 

With an injury sidelining the 2018 World Cup winner, Pogba made just eight appearances in all competitions for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

The 26-year-old has grown frustrated at Old Trafford and expressed a desire for a “new challenge” last summer.

But with Paul Pogba’s future to be decided in the near future, there is no doubt that Raiola has once again questioned Manchester United’s ambition.
