Agent Mino Raiola has fired back at United legend Paul Scholes after he criticised his client Paul Pogba and his patchy form.
This is an odd one.
Scholes made the headlines last week when he voiced his approval of Pogba wearing the captain’s armband and furthermore – claimed he should have been given it from day one.
However, after United’s incredibly poor showing against Brighton over the weekend, Pogba was singled out for criticism by the retired-midfielder.
“There’s a lack of leaders in the team, that’s why we thought Pogba might be the ideal candidate to be that leader but he wasn’t there [on Sunday]. He had another really poor game. He’s so inconsistent” via Optus Sport
Following this, Pogba’s agent took to his official Twitter page and attacked Scholes in bizarre fashion.
“Paul Scholes wouldn’t recognize a leader if he was in front of Sir Winston Churchill.
“Some people need to talk for fear of being forgotten.
“Paul Scholes should become sports director and advise Woodward to sell Pogba. Would be sleepless nights to find Pogba a new club.”
