The agent of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has launched a scathing attack on club legend Paul Scholes after his recent criticism of the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.
Scholes, 43, who represented the club for over two decades and featured 718 times for the club, winning 25 major titles has often been critical of the club-record signing's performances.
In the wake of his recent comments about 'attitude' in the defeat to Brighton, the former England midfielder accused the 25-year-old of 'not using his brain enough'.
He further went on to too criticise the lack of leadership in the current Red Devils squad, which has failed to challenge for the title since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson.
"There's a lack of leaders in the team. We thought Paul Pogba might be the ideal candidate to be that leader but he wasn't there today. He had another really poor game. He's so inconsistent."
And now Raiola has taken to social media to hit out at the Red Devils icon.
"Some people need to talk for fear of being forgotten. Paul Scholes wouldn’t recognize a leader if he was in front of Sir Winston Churchill," he wrote on Twitter.
"Paul Scholes should become sports director and advise Woodward to sell Pogba. Would be sleepless nights to find Pogba a new club."
