The former Manchester United junior was dropped for arriving late for two training sessions.
“Whoever decided to put this news out on the website is evidently confused,” Mino Raiola told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I hope it wasn’t Conte’s own decision, otherwise it means he is unable to deal with situations at this level.
“Paul is very disappointed with what happened, both for his lateness – despite good reasons – and for not being a part of the squad.
“In the first instance of lateness he only received notification of the training session time late into the night.
“In the second he had some appointments that the club itself had organised for him to go through some paperwork.”
