CHRIS SUTTON: Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola lacks class… what time a time to drop such a bombshell on the eve of Manchester United’s crunch Champions League clash at RB Leipzig
- Manchester United face a huge match at RB Leipzig on Tuesday night in Europe
- United must avoid defeat to reach the Champions League knockout stage
- But on the eve of their crunch clash, United were left stunned by Paul Pogba
- His agent, Mino Raiola, announced that the Frenchman will leave Old Trafford
RB Leipzig know all about Rashford from the way he destroyed them from the bench in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford. He was introduced in the 63rd minute and had a hat-trick by full-time.

But this is a very big night for Greenwood. The 19-year-old opened the scoring in that 5-0 demolition in October. He burst between two Leipzig central defenders and found the far corner with a first-time, left-footed finish. That’s his big strength. One chance and he can do damage.
His finish against West Ham at the weekend was instinctive, too, and Greenwood has to grab the bull by the horns against Leipzig. He’s lost some form this season, with Solskjaer having had to answer questions about off-field issues at times, but what an opportunity for him.
It was remarkable to read quotes from Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola on the eve of this season-defining clash, declaring his client’s United career over.

What a time to drop a bombshell when Solskjaer would want all of Pogba’s focus on the task at hand. It lacked class, and I hope we see a commanding performance from the Frenchman in midfield on Tuesday night.
This is going to be such a test. Leipzig are no fools. They’ve won all five of their Bundesliga home games this season. They held Bayern Munich to a 3-3 draw at the Allianz Arena at the weekend.
A dismal away day at Istanbul Basaksehir left United in this precarious position in Group H. Now they must stand up to the challenge.
