Manchester United legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson returned to Old Trafford for the first time since suffering a brain haemorrhage earlier this month and watched on with frustration as United could only manage a 1-1 draw with Wolves.
Ferguson who is the most successful manager in the league would be surprised at how the fortunes of the club he once managed has dwindled since his departure.
Jose Mourinho is the third manager that has been appointed to coach the team since Ferguson’s departure, and it hasn’t been a good start to the season for Mourinho.
United have only won four times out of nine games in all competitions this season and Saturday’s loss against West Ham has now heightened the pressure on the manager.
Ferguson who fell out with Pogba and his agent, Mino Raiola, during his time at United accused Pogba at the time midfielder of lacking any ‘respect’ following his move to Juventus.
Ferguson now believes Mourinho was wrong to have any dealing with Pogba because of his agent Mino Raiola.
According to reports, Ferguson also told friends he feared Mourinho was fueling negative publicity that he was ‘worried’ the Portuguese was transforming United into a laughing stock during their draw with Wolves.
Ferguson in his 2015 book Leading, revealed how he felt about Pogba’s agent Raiola.
“There are one or two football agents I simply do not like and Mino Raiola, Paul Pogba’s agent, is one of them,” he said.
“I distrusted him from the moment I met him. He became Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent while he was playing for Ajax, and eventually he would end up representing Pogba, who was only 18 years old at the time.
“We had Paul under a three-year contract, and it had a one-year renewal option which we were eager to sign. But Raiola suddenly appeared on the scene and our first meeting was a fiasco.
“He and I were like oil and water. From then on, our goose was cooked because Raiola had been able to ingratiate himself with Paul and his family and the player signed with Juventus.”
