MINO RAIOLA is at it again, this time claiming Pep Guardiola does not have the guts to sit with him and slamming the new Manchester City boss’s footballing philosophy as “boring”.
The outspoken agent, who has collected upwards of £25million in fees having had a hand in some huge transfers of his clients this summer, has now taken aim at Spaniard Guardiola.
Raiola told Italian website Cadena Cope: “I don’t like him. I do not hate him, but I do not like him. Everyone knows what happened to Zlatan in Barcelona.
“Everyone knows I don’t like him. He’s a good coach but his football philosophy seems boring to me. He doesn’t have the guts to sit next to me.

Raiola also claimed he has “neither a good nor a bad relationship” with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.
Pogba was thought to be a target for Madrid before his world-record £89m move to United, with Perez’s alleged poor relationship with Raiola said to have been problematic in any potential deal.
But Raiola added: “I don’t have a bad relationship with Florentino Perez. Actually, I have no relationship with him, I never talk to him.
