Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard have been criticised for sticking by their partnership with Mino Raiola despite the agent ‘disrespecting’ Manchester United.
Super-agent Raiola was involved in an explosive row with Simon Jordan on talkSPORT this week over his ongoing public feud with the Red Devils.
The 52-year-old representative was accused of ‘creating a culture of division’ at Old Trafford over the uncertain future of midfielder Pogba, who has been routinely linked with a move away.
Despite his recent war of words with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer , Raiola insisted live on air there is ‘no division’ between him and United and that he has not offended the club, their owners or their fans.
Supporters might have something to say about that, and former Crystal Palace owner Jordan certainly did as he took him to task over his meddling.
But while he took aim at the agent, Sports Breakfast hosts Alan Brazil and Tony Cascarino says the players he represents must take a share of the blame.
“I think Paul Pogba is guilty of not defending the football club,” claimed Cascarino.
“Staying with an agent who is clearly causing problem and headlines for you for the wrong reasons, it’s quite weird that Pogba is happy with that.”

Breakfast host, and ex-Man United striker, Brazil said: “Hasn’t Jesse Lingard just gone with him? If you want to stay at Manchester United and you pick an agent like that, I don’t think it does you any good.”
“I think he’s been very disrespectful to Manchester United with his attitude towards the club,” Cascarino added.
“Agents usually try to have good relationships with the clubs, you’ve got to have a good working relationship.
“But Raiola just doesn’t seem to care that he rocks boats.”
