Manchester United star Paul Pogba has seemingly done just what fans wanted in light of his agent Mino Raiola’s latest comments.
The French superstar is now on the supporters’ bad side once again after the notorious Dutch-Italian claimed his client wanted to leave the club.
Raiola had insisted Pogba’s time at United is over and called for the club to sell him as soon as possible, even if it meant doing so in January.
Fans were disgusted by the comments but even more so with the timing of them as it was made on the eve of the club’s crucial clash with RB Leipzig.
The Red Devils were subsequently knocked out, losing 3-2 and some supporters blamed Pogba and his agent for the loss.
Mino Raiola: “Pogba will have a great future. In England, they're very sensitive when you talk about Pogba… I’ve just expressed my thoughts. I’ve said that Paul can leave in the summer, it’s hard to do top deals in January”. ? #MUFC

Raiola seems to have now backtracked and it must be because Pogba spoke to him which is exactly what fans wanted to see.
It’s likely Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had to tell the former Juventus man to sort out the mess his agent created and now it appears he’s done so.
It’s unlikely to end speculation over Pogba’s future or even win fans over fully but at least it means the club have responded appropriately.
Some will still want the former academy product sold and given how there’s been no news in regards to a new contract, their wishes might come true soon enough.
