Star advisor Mino Raiola dies – Haaland mourns “the best”

Mino Raiola is dead. Football loses one of its most influential player agents – and a very argumentative character.

Mino Raiola was feared and insulted more than once by disgruntled football coaches. Quarrel and confrontation were two main motives for a short life – and yet the career of the notorious consultant, including BVB striker Erling Haaland, also offers an almost romantic move.

Carmine Raiola made it literally from rags to riches. He died on Saturday at the age of 54 after a long illness. International football is losing one of its big draws.

“It is with endless sadness that we say goodbye to the most amazing football agent ever,” read his family’s statement, posted on Raiola’s verified Twitter account: “Mino fought to the last with the same force he had defended our players at the negotiating table. “

Haaland posted a photo of him and Raiola on Instagram. “The best,” wrote the Norwegian, adding a red heart.
