“Paul is our player and not Mino’s” insists Manchester United boss

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned that the Old Trafford club will decide Paul Pogba’s future and not his outspoken agent Mino Raiola, as per Goal.

The super-agent angered the United hierarchy with his recent remarks about the Frenchman’s future at Old Trafford.

Raiola admitted that he has been in contact with Juventus sporting director Pavel Nedved and that they talk about the midfielder’s possible return to the Allianz Stadium.

He also revealed that the French footballer will want to leave United if they fail to provide Champions League football next season.

However, the Norwegian manager insists that the 26-year-old is still a key part of his future plans.

Solskjaer said:

“I’ve not spoken to Mino that is for sure. And, no, I haven’t sat down and told Paul to tell Mino what he should say. Paul is our player and not Mino’s.

The United boss further added that the Frenchman is desperate to help his side win Champions League football.

“Well of course I’d like to say that as soon as he gets fit he’ll be good enough to play and I’m sure Paul’s desperate to play for us again.

“As a player the last thing you want is to be is injured and not being able to contribute to your team.

“Paul’s a footballer and he wants to play football. He knows he has to work hard now to get back to his best as he’s been out for so long. It’s a challenge as well for him to get back to his shape.
