Sir Alex Ferguson has reignited his long-standing feud with Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola after labelling the Italian-Dutchman “a sh*tbag”.
The former Manchester United boss was left furious when the Frenchman rejected the offer of a new contract to join Juventus for a nominal fee back in 2012.
And the actions of Raiola came back to haunt United further when Pogba returned to Old Trafford in a world-record move for £89.3million last summer.
But during a talk with rugby team Sale Sharks, Ferguson – who now works as an ambassador for Manchester United – was filmed discussing the situation that saw Pogba leave the club.
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.
