Paul Pogba’s Agent Responds To Rumours Of A Rift With Jose Mourinho

Paul Pogba’s agent has waded into the reports about his client’s working relationship with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.

Some reports had suggested that issues had flared up between player and manager at Old Trafford, particularly surrounding Pogba’s role in the team’s midfield.

Speaking to Rai Sport, however, Mino Raiola has moved to play down this speculation and insists that Pogba is happy at Man United, happy with Mourinho, and certainly hasn’t been taking the former Juventus man to meet Real Madrid.

“I don’t take anyone anywhere, I’m not a taxi or a plane.

“Of course, if things weren’t going well then I’d be ready to do my job, which is to find other solutions for the club and the player.

“There’s no war with Mourinho though, Paul wants to win with Manchester United.”

Pogba has been in and out of the Man United starting lineup in recent weeks as doubts about his suitability to Mourinho’s preferred formation increased slightly. However, his strong performance in a midfield three with Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay in the 2-1 win against Chelsea last week will definitely have given the Man United manager something to think about for the remainder of the campaign.

Raiola enjoyed a fruitful relationship with Man United in the summer of 2016 but his base has lessened in recent times. Another of his clients, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, is expected to leave Old Trafford at the end of the campaign, while another, Henrikh Mkhitaryan left for Arsenal in January.
