Ibrahimovic’s agent wades into Cruyff and Guardiola

Raiola – with Telly Savalas

Mino Raiola

Ibrahimovic – depending on where you stand on the subject, he’s either football’s Audley Harrison, or a millionaire’s Peter Crouch.

Either way, his agent – a maniac called Mino Raiola – has rolled up his sleeves and windmilled into Johan Cruyff and Pep Guardiola after Cruyff made a valid remark about the tall one being more suited to Italian fooball.

As reported by our pals at Dirty Tackle, Raiola spat these words before being restrained:

“Cruyff can go to hell! He is a nobody.”

“He is becoming old and didn’t have the courage to continue his management career, as he doesn’t know how to train a modern club.

“Why didn’t Cruyff tell Zlatan that he wasn’t suited to Spanish football before Barcelona signed him?”

“I think Cruyff should be in a mental asylum with Guardiola, so they can sit there quietly and play cards together. They would be doing Barcelona a great favour.”

Begging the question: has he confused “mental asylum” with “casino”?

    He must think he’s Ari Gold.

    A fat Dutch-Italian Ari Gold, with less talent and less funnies. More tragic.
