Gary Neville has hit back at Mino Raiola after the agent launched into a stunning verbal attack on ​Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over Paul Pogba. The outspoken ​Raiola took to Twitter on Monday to criticise Solskjaer for his comments saying Pogba belongs to the club, insisting that the Frenchman is his own man. 

It is not the first time Raiola has spoken publicly about Pogba’s situation at United, as just last week he hinted that the 26-year-old could move to ​Juventus in the summer. Neville believes United cannot allow themselves to be ‘played’ by Raiola and has urged the club to cut ties with the super agent.

“It will end with Paul Pogba leaving Manchester United," Neville told ​Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football

"What needs to happen is the club needs to make a stand against that agent. He has messed them around now for years, with Pogba and with other players, and why they allow themselves to be played I’ll never know. He is a serious thorn in the side for them and United should just stand strong and not do business with this guy.

"Raiola wants Pogba out the club, he wants his next payday. He has made millions off that player and he will continue to do so. He is the golden egg for Mino Raiola.”

Pogba, 26, has been absent for the majority of the 2019-20 campaign with an ankle injury and continues to be linked with a move away from Old Trafford. The 2018 World Cup winner last played on Boxing Day, featuring for 45 minutes in United's 4-1 victory over ​Newcastle.
