Paul Pogba "not Solskjaer’s property" blasts Mino Raiola

Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has launched an angry tirade against Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

The French midfielder remains sidelined with an ankle problem having undergone surgery in January.

Despite his lack of game time this season, Pogba's future remains a hot topic for discussion.

Speaking ahead of the Premier League trip to Chelsea, Solskjaer had a dig at Pogba's agent saying, "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."

It's hoped that Pogba can return in time for the Manchester derby in March, with the 26-year old needing to prove his fitness to France head coach Didier Deschamps ahead of Euro 2020. The midfielder hasn't played since St. Stephen's Day.

Clearly riled by Solskjaer's remarks, Raiola shared an angry rant he'd composed in the notes app on his phone.

"Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer’s property,” Raiola wrote.

“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 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.”
