Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand gives sound advice to Paul Pogba

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has shared a key advice to midfielder Paul Pogba on how to deal with his agent Mino Raiola.

Ferdinand has advised him to start doing the talking on his future by himself rather than allowing Raiola to do it for him.

Speaking to the Beautiful Game Podcast, he said: “I’m honest about Paul and I love Paul, because he’s a geat kid. I’ve known him since he was a young boy and I still chat to him now.

“But the only problem I have with Paul is he should chat instead of his agent chatting. If he did that there would be more clarity on the whole situation.

“I spoke to him about all that type of stuff but Paul’s his own man and he’s going to deal with it his own way, I respect that, that’s fine. So that’s the only thing I’d say.”

Dutch controversial super-agent Mino Raiola has generated a lot of controversy regarding the Frenchman’s future and has been involved in a series of verbal attack on the club.

Raiola has also hinted on a summer move to Real Madrid for his client, and also reportedly held talks with Juventus, while also suggesting that Pogba could stay at United in a bid to create uncertainties.

The Frenchman has only made 8 appearances for the club this season.
