THE POGBA DEAL INTO MANCHESTER HUMILITATED THE UNITEDS LEGENDARY COACH SIR ALEX WHICH MADE HIM LOOK SILLY.

Sir Alex former manager of Manchester United made a decision in the past leaving Pogba to Juventus for which the club had to pay a record breaking transfer fee for his return to Manchester

Ferguson revealed of the trouble with Pogba and his agent Mino Raiola in his 2015 book ‘Leading’, explaining:

“There are one or two football agents I simply do not like, and Mino Raiola is one of them. We had Paul under a three-year contract, and it had a one-year renewal option which we were eager to sign. Raiola suddenly appeared on the scene and our first meeting was a fiasco. He and I were like oil and water.

“From then our goose was cooked because Raiola had been able to ingratiate himself with Paul and his family and the player signed with Juventus.”

 “It was a very, very difficult moment for me because I was in love with Manchester and I was a Mancunian,” Pogba

“It was the match against Blackburn in December 2011 at Old Trafford.

“Paul Scholes had retired, Darren Fletcher was injured. There was no one left to play in midfield. And I was training and I was beginning to get better bit by bit, and the coach never stopped telling me: ‘You’re this far’.

“And I didn’t understand. This far away from what? Playing? From having some playing time? From getting on the field? Or what?

“And there was Rafael in midfield and I was disgusted. I was disgusted and I didn’t get on either.”
