Red Devil fans around the world were left gobsmacked when Ferguson seemingly allowed the Frenchman to leave Old Trafford in 2012.

However, the Scotsman revealed what really happened with the midfielder’s exit, shifting the blame onto Pogba’s agent, who he admitted to never trusting.

Now Raiola has hit back at Ferguson’s claims, saying that the former Red Devils boss has no clue who Pogba is.

“Those words don't describe my work in a negative way," he told Tuttosport.

“I rate them as a proof that I am good at my job.

“I have to do what's best for my players' sake. If I had looked only at my immediate gain, I would have kept Pogba in Manchester.

“But I put Pogba's interests first and we decided to go to Turin.

“Maybe Ferguson only likes those who obey him.

“From his quotes, I understand that Ferguson still doesn't have a clue who Pogba really is.

“Ferguson was an excellent manager, but the greatest managers can be wrong sometimes.”
