Players ‘Sacking’ Their Agents: An Increasingly Worrying Trend? – Transfer Clauses Agents Should Be Aware Of – New ‘Education & Licensing’ Agents Post Advertised at FIFA

Season 1 : Episode 28

With the introduction of the new football agent license by FIFA (as part of FFAR), there are reports of players ‘sacking’ their agents, or ‘walking away’ and/or ‘dissolving’ existing representation agreements and contracts.

Agents are rumoured to be circling one Manchester United star of the future, and another former United player ‘sacking’ family members as his agents; ‘The Agents Angle’ examines this phenomenon and looks at the huge threat that it creates for those formerly ‘Registered Intermediaries’ who are now unlicensed, and others who may still have existing agreements with clients.

This episode also looks at prominent clauses in transfer agreements that all agents should be aware of, especially during a transfer window. From ‘buy-out’ clauses and more complex ‘loan’ arrangements, to ‘buy back’ clauses and ‘sell-ons’.

Also, the show looks at signs of FIFA possibly extending their agent team on relocating to Miami, with an advertised role with FIFA for a new ‘Education and Licensing Manager’ of Football Agents, which could be very suitable for someone from the agent’s world, who understands this complex and nuanced football agent industry.
