Raiola launches scathing attack on Man Utd boss Solskjaer: You don't own Pogba!

Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola has responded angrily to comments made by Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It is a continuation of the war of words between the two figures, which begun last week when Raiola stated that his client felt at home in Italy, as rumours continue to connect Pogba with Juventus.

Solskjaer responded at a press conference on Friday, stating: "I've not spoken to Mino, that's for sure, [and] no, I haven't sat down and told Paul to tell his agent what to say. But Paul is our player and not Mino's."

Raiola has now reacted furiously to Solskjaer's comments on Monday night with an Instagram post that read: "Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer's property, Paul is Paul Pogba's. 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.

"BUT BEFORE Solskjaer makes comments about things I say he should inform himself better about the content of what has been said. I am a free citizen who can think and express my thoughts. Until now I was maybe to nice to him. Solskjaer should just remember things that he said in the summer to Paul.

"I think Solskjaer may be frustrated for different reasons and is now mixing up some issues. I think that Solskjaer has other things to worry about. AT LEAST IF I WAS HIM I WOULD."
