Sad news for the Paul Pogbas world! Mino Raiola, the most influential and probably best-known consultant in the football scene, died surprisingly on Thursday. Media report.
Italian media write that the 54-year-old died as a result of an illness. However, the exact cause remains open.
Raiola gained world fame as a consultant of absolute football top stars. Among other things, Haaland and Donyall painting by Borussia Dortmund, Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus Turin, Paul Pogba by Manchester United, the Ajax duo Ryan Gravenberch and Nousussair Mazraoui and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are part of his clients. According to “Forbes”, he is said to have taken around 90 million euros with his shops in 2020 alone.
Already at the beginning of the year, the Italian “Gazetta Dello Paul Pogba” announced that Raiola had to undergo emergency operation due to a lung disorder.
At the time, Raiola’s management confirmed on Twitter: “Mino Raiola is subject to the usual medical examinations that require anesthesia.” At that time, however, calming words were also heard from the circles of the Italian. “Everything was planned and there was no emergency surgery,” said a spokeswoman for Raiola’s “Paul Pogba1”.
The “Gazetta Dello Paul Pogba” writes in the news about the death of the star agent that everything has gotten worse in the past few weeks.
An official confirmation of the reports from the Raiola side is still pending.
