This question is surely the one that many of his friends and players he represented are asking themselves, so it is necessary to review what his relatives have reported so far.
What was Mino Raiola's cause of death?
While the cause of death of the popular soccer player representative is not known for certain, media outlets have reported that his death was due to complications from lung disease.
Because this week Raiola had presented health complications that caused his hospitalization, the agent had been in a hospital in Italy awaiting his recovery.
There was even a very curious episode last Thursday, as several media had announced that Raiola had already passed away, so it was the representative himself who was in charge of denying the rumor.
Through his Twitter account, the manager of players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Hirving Lozano had said: "Current health status for those who wonder: pissed off second time in 4 months that kill me. Seems to be able to resuscitate as well."
However this very morning it was Raiola's family members who used their social networks to announce that he had passed away, through a statement written in English and Italian.
"With great sorrow, we share the passing of the best soccer agent there was. Mino fought to the end with the same strength he put on the negotiating tables to defend his players. As always, Mino made us proud," the message read.
"Mino touched many lives through his work and wrote a new chapter in the history of modern soccer. His presence will always be missed. Mino's mission was to make soccer a better place for his players to continue with the same passion," the message concluded.

Inter, Juventus, and Napoli have already remembered Mino Raiola on the day of his death, in an act that Udinese Calcio has also just made, from where they express their condolences for the deceased agent.
Mexican soccer player Hirving Lozano also dedicated his condolences to his former agent and said that he had learned a lot about soccer thanks to the guidance he had received from the agent.
Another who added his condolences was Inter Milan's sporting director, Giusseppe Marotta, who described him as "a friend, a worker and a person of quality and high competence" after his death on Saturday.
