Neville declares Man Utd boss Solskjaer 'masterful' for handling Pogba and Raiola

Manchester United hero Gary Neville says the way Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has handled Paul Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola has been "masterful".

Neville wrote for the Daily Mail: "When his agent did what he did after going out in Europe, it was a blow too far. The agent always seems to pop up when something goes bad for the club or when the club is at its lowest ebb in a season.

"It's just not acceptable. But I have to say, Paul doesn't. He doesn't say that he wants to leave the club.

"I must admit, the way we as pundits handled the Pogba situation with [his agent Mino] Raiola a few weeks ago was emotion because we see it from the outside. The way Ole handled the Raiola comments was masterful, really.

"He knew he was going to have Paul at least until the end of the season. He poured cold water over it and he's now got him performing and handled that situation really well. Ole deserves real credit for how he's dealt with Pogba in the last couple of months."
