Mino Raiola is a football agent who represents many well known football players including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku.
Raiola said, “Pep Guardiola, the coach, is fantastic. As a person he’s an absolute zero. He’s a coward, a dog. He’s a classic priest. ‘Do as I tell you – don’t do what I do….’ If Manchester City wins the Champions League this season it will emphasize what a good coach he is – but I’ll hate it.”
In 2011 the tensions ran high between the two men after Raiola’s client Zlatan Ibrahimovic was kicked out of Barcelona after disputes with Guardiola, a move that cost him a Champions League winner’s medal.
It seems that the relationship between Raiola and Guardiola has hit rock bottom, as the agent insists he would send his players to other clubs rather than see the Manchester City boss benefit from their services.
