'You cannot own a human being' - Raiola slams Solskjaer over Pogba
Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has written a lengthy social media post slamming Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's suggestion that the Frenchman was "Manchester United's player and not Mino's".
Solskjaer said in the run-up to the 2-0 win over Chelsea that "Paul is our player and not Mino's", prompting a furious response from the agent.
"Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer’s property, Paul is Paul Pogba’s," he wrote on Instagram.
"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 [sic].
"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 to 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."
Speaking after the 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge, Solskjaer refused to be drawn into commenting on the situation.
"I don't have to comment about Mino Raiola through the media, I can talk to him myself," he told BBC Sport.
When asked whether he would talk to Raiola, Solskjaer replied: "Probably not."
