Paul Pogba has been told to come out and clarify comments his agent, Mino Raiola, has made.
The famous moneyman has hit out at Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a bizarre Twitter rant after earlier remarks over his client’s future.
After suggesting Pogba could return to Juventus in the summer, the Manchester United boss exclaimed that the Frenchman is the club’s property, not Raiola’s.
Raiola hit back, saying: “Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer’s property, Paul is Paul Pogba’s.
“Before Solskjaer makes comments about things I say he should inform himself better about the content of what has been said.
“Until now I was maybe too nice to him. Solskjaer should just remember things that he said in the summer to Paul.
“I think Solskjaer may be frustrated for different reasons and is now mixing up some issues. I think that Solskjaer has other things to worry about.”
And now Pogba has been told to come out and put the matter to bed by Chris Sutton.
He said on BBC 5Live: “I think it’s up to Paul Pogba now to come out and straighten this whole matter out on where he stands.
“Why should Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have to come out and answer questions because of what an agent has said?
“Paul Pogba is a Manchester United player. He’s had opportunities this season to say ‘I am committed to Man United’.
“He posts other stuff on Instagram but come out and tell us you’re committed to the club and you don’t want your agent talking for you.
“Because that is how most people would see this situation – Mino Raiola is talking and representing Paul Pogba.”
Pogba has been largely missing this season through injury and underwent ankle surgery in January.
“Paul knows he has to work hard to get back to his best,” said Solskjaer.
“He has been out now for so long now, it’s a challenge to get back into shape.”

The Red Devils boss also confirmed that the World Cup winner was continuing his recovery away from the club.
“I don’t have to justify every decision,” he said. “Paul is still on his recovery programme.
“He’s taken off his cast and started running on the treadmill now, so he’s getting closer. It’s been a long haul. Hopefully we’ll see him back soon.”
