War of words between Solskjaer and Raiola; Pogba has been sidelined with ankle injury for majority of 2019-20 season; Frenchman’s future at Old Trafford uncertain.
Mino Raiola has hit out at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for comments he made about Paul Pogba, stating the midfielder is neither the agent’s nor the Manchester United manager’s “property”.
Pogba, 26, has been absent for the majority of the 2019-20 campaign with an ankle injury and continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford.
The 2018 World Cup winner last played on Boxing Day, featuring for 45 minutes in United’s 4-1 victory over Newcastle.
Solskjaer said before United’s Premier League clash with Chelsea on Monday: “Paul is our player and not Mino’s.
“I haven’t sat down and told Paul to tell his agent what to say. I’ve not spoken to Mino, that’s for sure.”
On Monday evening, Pogba’s representative Raiola responded on Instagram: “Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer’s property, Paul is Paul Pogba’s…
“BUT BEFORE Solskjaer makes comments about things I say he should inform himself better about the content of what has been said.
