PSL Coach Refutes Accusations Of Influencing Player Movements

A PSL Coach Is Accused Of Misconduct By An Agent

By Masebe Qina - Apr 25, 2018 10:02 AM

A PSL coach is accused by a local football agent of influencing the movements of players.

As reported in edition 1070 of Soccer Laduma, Free State Stars’ Luc Eymael is being accused of influencing player movements, as the July/August transfer window draws nearer.

The Belgian coach is accused by local football agent, Ratshibvumo Mulovhedzi of Rush Hour Sports Management for allegedly facilitating a move for a player from his agency to another well-known South African agent.

“I have a problem with Luc Eymael for what has happened with one of my players, who is playing for Free State Stars. Eymael is a nice guy whom I speak to from time to time, but I don’t like what he has done. He is taking my players to another agent. My players are being promised deals at (Kaizer) Chiefs, as a result of this association between the coach and the agent,” said Mulovhedzi.

“It can’t be right that coaches get involved in player movements. I’m disappointed in what has been done to Nyiko Mobbie, who has been my player from the early stages of his career but has now been taken to another agent now that he is blossoming to be one of the top players in the PSL. Is Luc a coach or an agent, or even both? He should tell us. It would be nice for him to focus on the very good job that he is doing as the coach, and leave players and their movements to the people entitled to do that job,” added the player’s representative.

“Mike Makaab has confirmed to me that he has a contract with Nyiko Mobbie. I’m wondering how that is even possible because I’m the one who’s been with the boy through and through – since he was a young boy,” concluded the player representative.

Contacted for comment, Eymael distanced himself from the player representative’s utterances.

“I don’t want to get involved with what he is saying, but if he has a contract with the player, he has to show the contract. I’m not interested in these kinds of things. I don’t decide who my (Stars’) players have to sign with. I have never taken one rand on the player’s (deal) - not one rand, not one dollar, not one shilling. The player of Ratshi is Mobbie. He signed with Mike Makaab, and I was not aware. He did that without informing me, so it’s not my problem. I’m not an agent. If he (Mulovhedzi) wants to use something like that against me, I will inform my lawyer,” said Eymael.

Prosport International’s Mike Makaab told the Siya crew that the player signed with his company on his own, and without being influenced by anyone.

“Prosport International has been in this industry for two decades and we have built our reputation on the way we deal – in a professional, transparent and ethical manner. We do not need coaches or club administrators to influence footballers to sign with our company. Nyiko signed with us of his own free will. I have never spoken to Mr Mulovhedzi, so I do not understand how he can quote this in the media,” said Makaab.

“In addition to this, it is totally untrue that we have offered any footballer from Free State Stars to Kaizer Chiefs – you can confirm this with Mr Kaizer Motaung. In this instance, Mr Mulovhedzi needs to be careful (about) making unsubstantiated allegations in the public domain. If he does, in fact, have a representation contract with Nyiko, as he alleges, then all he has to do is to present this to us and (we) will respond accordingly. Prosport has a top-class relationship with Free State Stars, not through Mr Eymael, but our long-standing business relationship with Mr Mike Mokoena and his family from the early days of Qwa-Qwa Stars,” concluded Makaab.

For as long as I live, I will never forget Komphelas Mageu interview........"When asked about buying players in the January transfer window to bolster his squad, Steve answered in the best way he knows how: “We follow procedures. It’s just easy, more especially for us at Chiefs. We could go to the same shop and buy mageu, but the price will never be the same and at Chiefs you are required to give the best quality of mageu.”

Bobby is aware of this. I know Bobby very well especially when it comes to average players' movements.

But can a player have two Agents? If not, why not? Because with us corporate employees, we have more than one Agency to find jobs for us. Anyone who finds a job first for you, gets their fee. Its simple. I wish I could understand this football agent business better.
