Man Utd boss Solskjaer responds calmly to Raiola online MELTDOWN

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shrugged off agent Mino Raiola's latest personal attack after victory at Chelsea.

Raiola angrily responded to comments made by Solskjaer on Friday that 'Paul is our player, not Mino's' with social media posts by saying 'you cannot own a human being already for a long time in the UK or anywhere else. I HOPE Solskjaer DO NOT WANT TO SUGGEST THAT PAUL IS HIS PRISONER'.

Pogba's agent also reminded Solskjaer he 'should just remember things that he said in the summer to Paul' and the Norwegian 'has other things to worry about'. Solskjaer managed United to a 2-0 Premier League win at Chelsea on Monday night and was reluctant to bite back at Raiola.

"No comment," Solskjaer said. "People can say whatever they want in the world today on social media and it makes headlines, I don't really need to say anything. Didn't seem to bother any of our players, or anyone, so not gonna comment on that, no.

"I don't have to comment through the media on Mino and what he says. I can probably speak to him myself."

When Solskjaer was asked if he would speak to him, he replied: "Probably not.

"You know the media and you can't control that anyway. Anyone's got a voice and you can have your opinion and there are things being said about us that you want to comment but you'd rather not. It's more clever that you don't comment on many different things.

"It's not my area [to speak to Pogba]. Paul and Mino have their conversations. It's fine."
