Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has cautioned super-agent Mino Raiola over his latest comments that his client, Paul Pogba’s time at the club is over.
United crashed out of the Champions League following a 3-2 loss to RB Leipzig and barely hours to the encounter, Raiola had suggested that Pogba needs to leave the club.
The Frenchman was named on the bench for the cracker and came on to inspire the Red Devils who were three goals down to come close at 3-2.
United needed a point to cruise to the next round of the tournament but they could not complete the comeback as they now move to the Europa League.
Solskjaer said after the game via Sky Sports:
"As soon as Paul's agent realises this is a team sport and we work together, the better. That's probably maybe the last thing I say on that. I don't want to spend energy on that."
When asked if Pogba is happy at the club, Solskjaer said:
"You'll have to ask Paul. I'm not going to speak for him. Paul's focused on doing his best for the team. He's working hard in training.
"Now is not the time to discuss ins and outs at the club."
Super agent Raiola who masterminded the 27-year-old’s staggering £89million move to the Old Trafford outfit from Juventus in 2016 says the best solution is for his client to move.
United will return to Premier League action on Saturday, December 12 when they take on Manchester City as pressure continue to mount on the manager.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Frank Lampard has backed his new signings, Kai Havertz and Timo Werner to become great players at the club in the nearest future, adding that he is not bothered about their recent poor form.
Werner moved to the Stamford Bridge club during the summer after the Blues activated his £47.5million release clause, while midfielder Havertz signed from Bayer Leverkusen in a deal potentially worth up to £71million.
So far, Werner has scored eight goals since his arrival at the Premier League club in all competitions; he has also missed surprising chances lately, while Havertz is struggling to get a starting shirt.
