It has been confirmed that super-agent Mino Raiola has sadly passed away.
There were reports earlier this week that Raiola had passed on, but the agent hit out those reports on Twitter although he was gravely ill.
The family have now released a statement confirming his death on Saturday afternoon.
“In infinite sorrow, we share the passing of the most caring and amazing football agent that ever was.
“Mino fought until the end with the same strength he put on negotiation tables to defend our players. As usual, Mino made us proud and never realized it.
“Mino touched so many lives through his work and wrote a new chapter in the history of modern football. His presence will forever be missed.
“Mino’s mission of making football a better place for players will continue with the same passion.”
