​Super Agent Mino Raiola Sensationally Vows To ‘Delete’ Football’s Governing Body, FIFA

Super agent Mino Raiola has vowed to 'delete' football's governing body, FIFA.

Raiola has been critical of FIFA for many years, slamming the way they currently run the global game and describing them as 'like a communist dictator'.


Now, in an interview with Tuttosport, Raiola said: "I am currently working to delete FIFA from existing."

Back in March, Raiola launched an extraordinary attack on FIFA, stating that the organisation pick and choose their decisions.

He said: "FIFA is like a communist dictator who tells people what they have to do at all times.

"We are looking for a more transparent world of work and if FIFA wants to, perfect. It has to clear the table, declare our rights and we would start talking. FIFA just says they decide. It's ridiculous.

"The agents maintain that a change is necessary, a different line of action.

"Football needs a second system. FIFA today wants to be everything: the government, the commercial part, the legal part... and that is impossible.

"We know how to regulate alone. Why do you have to take part of our money? In Europe we organise with clubs and there is no problem. Why do I have to go through FIFA if I understand with UEFA? Of course, it is a power game. That's why we said 'enough'. "

Raiola represents some of the most influential players in world football including Paul Pogba and Erling Haaland.

In the interview with Tuttosport, which will be released in full on Tuesday, the Italian also claimed that Pogba's time at Manchester United is 'over'.
