He understands the club and what we stand for to our millions of fans around the world. His arrival is the final and very important part of the jigsaw in our development of a new football infrastructure to take us forward."

 

Mino Raiola Starts His Stand Up Comedy Tour

The first step on 'super' agent (super in terms of the huge amounts of money he makes not in terms of how good he is for the game, because he certainly is not good for the game) Mino Raiola's comedy tour was radio station Talksport yesterday. There he came out with some cracking gags, such as when talking about Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba: "The player has done nothing wrong. He has been respectful and professional. The club has known his feeling for a long time. It is a shame other people only like to criticise without the right information, and I am also sorry that the club does not take any position against this." Respectful AND professional! How does he come up with this stuff? It is pure hilarity!
