Super agent Raiola: Why I get along with Man Utd star Zlatan

Super agent Mino Raiola has spoken of his relationship with Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahmovic.

This morning, Raiola revealed how he was not afraid of the famously egotistical and cocky Ibrahimovic when he met with the striker in 2003.

He told Jim White on TalkSport: “Zlatan liked me because I was the first one to tell him he was full of s**t.

“I told him to work harder, other people told him all the nice stuff, I told him the truth to make him better."

He added: “You don't have to work with fear, you need to believe in what you're doing. I don't want people out there with fear, try to win the game.

“They have a game on the field; I have a game outside the field. We tend to lose focus in business, you have to have one concern, for me that is serving my players and showing them interest."
