Mino Raiola has launched a fresh swipe at Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over his recent comments on Erling Haaland.
The agent claimed that Paul Pogba is “unhappy” at Old Trafford, while the player’s time is “over” at the club. His comments came ahead of United’s trip to Germany for the Champions League group stage match against RB Leipzig.
Earlier this week, Solskjaer, who previously worked with Haaland at Molde, was asked about Red Devils’ target’s recent progress.
“The boy has had a great start to his career. It was really good to work with him, see the potential in him and some part of me feels proud in having a little input in a rise,” said the Norwegian manager.
Raiola thinks Solskjaer should stop talking about the 20-year-old and focus on improving Pogba’s performances at United.
He told Tuttosport: “Haaland is like Ibra when he was 20.
“Solskjaer is a good guy but he was wrong when he said that Erling is like Lukaku.
“It would be better if Solskjaer thought about finding a way to make Pogba play like a champion, instead of talking about Haaland.”
On Haaland’s future, the agent added: “I can’t talk about Haaland release clause. Rumours say Real Madrid want him?
“This is not new to me… but he is very happy with Borussia Dortmund. Erling wants to win the Champions League. When he’ll leave the club, it will be for his ambition and not for money.”
