Sir Alex Ferguson's Damning Comments On Paul Pogba Could Come Back To Haunt Mourinho
Sir Alex Ferguson was able to round off his incredible Manchester United career with a Premier League, but there were some people who raised their eyebrows at him when he let Paul Pogba leave the club in 2012.
It's hardly surprising either, especially when the Red Devils had to break the bank in 2016 to bring the French midfielder back to the club.
Considering how Pogba's crumbling relationship with José Mourinho has entered a whole new level of absurdity in recent weeks, Ferguson might have been right to offload the footballer back in the day.
It would seem that the legendary United boss had warned the club about the World Cup-winning star and his agent, Mino Raiola.
Oh, and Ferguson had warned the Red Devils about the duo twice before he left for the Italian club.
"Pogba signed for Juventus a long time ago as far as we're aware," he said (via the Daily Mirror).
"It's a bit disappointing because I don't think he showed us any respect at all. To be honest, if they carry on that way, I'm quite happy that he's away, from me, anyway."
On Ferguson's part, he wasn't done with Raiola.
In one of his autobiographies, Leading, the Scotsman took another dig at the agent.
"There are one or two football agents I simply do not like," he said. "And Mino Raiola, Paul Pogba's agent, is one of them."
Pogba's recent training ground bust-up with Mourinho has been one of the main talking points throughout the week.
That's not to mention the former Chelsea boss stripping the 25-year-old of his vice-captain duties, creating more reports surrounding Pogba's exit from the club and Barcelona once again showing interest in the United midfielder.
Should United sell Pogba next summer?
