Super agent Mino Raiola has FIFA ban lifted

FIFA have confirmed Mino Raiola's three-month long worldwide extension of his suspension from the Italian FA has been lifted.
Raiola had been subject to the initial sanction from the Italian FA, which the chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee extended globally with immediate effect on May 11.
The 51 year-old filed an appeal against the bans to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and it was announced on Wednesday that he could go about his work while the case was deliberated.
Speaking in May, Raiola blamed the penalty on "political willing" within the Italian Football Federation.
He said in a statement: "I guess the FIGC has not forgiven me for when I diffused my critics for their role in the disastrous state of Italian football, as well as their role around the latest episode of the racism problem, and my opinions could have had an influence in the evaluation of the matter."
The Italian has a number of high-profile footballers on his books including Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mario Balotelli and Matthijs de Ligt.
Recent events could increase the likelihood of Pogba returning to Serie A champions Juventus this summer, as well as De Ligt joining one of the many European clubs he has been linked with - including Barcelona and PSG.
