Carmine “Mino” Raiola will now be able to work in the world of football after a ban was suspended by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
Carmine “Mino” Raiola was banned a few weeks ago by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC).
This means the agent was not able to conduct any business in Italian football, or any place worldwide.
But today, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has suspended his worldwide ban, after he filed an appeal.
Mino Raiola works as an agent for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba.
He also represents LA Galaxy striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt.
“I guess the FIGC has not forgiven me for when I diffused my critics for their role in the disastrous state of Italian football,” he told the BBC in May.
“As well as their role around the latest episode of the racism problem.”
He concluded: “And my opinions could have had an influence in the evaluation of the matter.”
