Contrary to initial reports, Dr. Alberto Zangrillo of Milan’s San Raffaele hospital has announced that Mino Raiola is alive but in critical condition.
“I’m outraged at calls from pseudo-journalists who are speculating on the life of a man who’s fighting.” says the Doctor.
Raiola took to his official Twitter account to announce that he his still alive.
“Current health status for the ones wondering: pissed off second time in 4 months they kill me. Seem also able to ressuscitate.” He tweeted.
Mino Raiola is one of the most powerful figures in football, responsible for handling stars as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Matthijs de Ligt and Romelu Lukaku.
Born in Italy but raised in the Netherlands, Raiola got his career to a start by expanding his parents’ restaurant business.
The 54-year-old agent nicknamed ‘Super Agent’ due to his ability to negotiate juicy offers and having top clients in his books.
He closed the then world-record transfer of Pogba to Manchester United in 2016 while also making a profitable return himself. He pocketed a reported €25 million (£22m) for the France international’s €105m (£92m/$117m) move.
His list of players is incredible; Erling Haaland, Matthijs de Ligt, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Stefan De Vrij, Marco Verratti, Hirving Lozano, Denzel Dumfries, Donyell Malen, Justin Kluivert, Noussair Mazraoui, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and co.
