Following the death of Paul Pogba’s agent, Erik ten Hag, Manchester United’s assistant manager-in-waiting, paid respect to the late Erling Haaland.
The football agent Mino Raiola passed away last week after a brief illness, and his colleague Erik ten Hag has paid tribute to him.
It was only last week that Raiola’s family was able to declare that he had passed away after months of illness. He had been compelled to reject premature reports of his death, but his family acknowledged his death on Saturday.
The Italian-born Dutchman was one of the game’s most powerful agents, representing players like as Manchester United’s Paul Pogba and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, among others, during his career.
Asked about Raiola’s passing after Ajax’s 3-0 victory against PEC Zwolle at the weekend, United’s manager-in-waiting Virgil Ten Hag expressed his gratitude for Raiola’s contributions to the sport.
The winner’s statement noted, “He was one of the most spectacular agents, and he was also extremely important on the international player market.”
To the game of football and in particular to the players he represented, he meant a lot. He did so in a professional and effective manner. Many players’ careers have been shaped by Mino.
Ten Hag went on to say that the devastating news had an affect on some members of his team prior to their recent victory: “I noticed that it moved the players.” “However, because it was so near to the game, I didn’t do anything with it immediately.”
