Mino Raiola says he has been “too nice” to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and suggested he “remember things” he said to Paul Pogba in the summer.

The agent of France midfielder Pogba vented his rant on Twitter and was in response to comments from the United boss, who claimed: “Paul is our player.”

The relationship between Pogba and his agent with Manchester United has been tense for a while, with the midfielder understood to be keen to leave Old Trafford.

Pogba has played just eight games for United this season, with his last appearance coming on Boxing Day, as a persistent foot injury has kept him sidelined.

On Monday, Solskjaer said: “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.”

Raiola hit back though while United were beating Chelsea 2-0 and tweeted: “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 not want to suggest that Paul is his prisoner.

“But before Solskjaer makes comments about things I say he should inform himself better about the content of what has been said.

 

 

 

“I am a free citizen who can think and express my thoughts. Until now I was maybe too nice to him. Solskjaer should just remember things that he said in the summer to Paul.

“I think Solskjaer may be frustrated for different reasons and is now mixing up some issues. I think that Solskjaer has other things to worry about. At least if I was him I would.”

Solskjaer responded to the criticism after the game at Stamford Bridge, he said: “I don’t have to comment about Mino Raiola through the media, I can talk to him myself.”

Asked if he would talk to Raiola personally, Solskjaer replied while failing to hide a slight smirk: “Probably not.”
