Mino Raiola goes to war: 'Scholes should be sports director & advise Woodward to sell Pogba'
- Pogba's agent has responded to Scholes's criticism of his client
Mino Raiola is creating controversy where there is supposed to be none as his latest quip is aimed at the Man United legend Scholes who appears to not know how to feel about Paul Pogba wearing the captain armband for Man United. Raiola 'talks Scholes up' for a position that would fix him up with chief executive Ed Woodward:
Some people need to talk for fear of being forgotten. Paul Scholes wouldn’t recognize a leader if he was in front of Sir Winston Churchill. @paulpogba— Mino Raiola (@MinoRaiola) August 21, 2018
Paul Scholes should become sports director and advise Woodward to sell Pogba. Would be sleepless nights to find Pogba a new club @paulpogba— Mino Raiola (@MinoRaiola) August 21, 2018
Scholes had initially been pleased with Jose Mourinho's decision to hand the responsibility to the Frenchman who lead the team to a 2-1 win against Leicester City on the opening day of the new campaign. However, the disappointment of the 3-2 defeat at Brighton last weekend fast eroded the feeling.
The former midfielder first criticised the Pogba's display and then he was appalled by the Frenchman's admission that both he and the team had had a wrong attitude for the game against a smaller club.
In no way do exchanges like contribute to a positive resolution surrounding Pogba's situation. In a summer when Barcelona apparently tracked the Frenchman [possibly still are] who already made a dubious statement that failed to hush the talks, it is something that will make people speculate about Pogba's future at Old Trafford again.
