Do Agents Care About Our Players?

Over the years we have seen a number of players committing 'career suicide' after rich clubs dangle big carrots in front of them and their agents, only to regret their decisions later on.

A number of players have left their clubs, where they were doing exceptionally well, playing week-in-and-week-out only to desert them for ‘greener pastures’. These deals are mostly organised through the players’ agents and players usually make a lot of money in the signing-on-fee and a better salary, with the agents getting their share.

Most of these players’ promising careers hit a rock bottom when they realise that the grass isn’t as green as it looked from the other side. They start crying foul, blaming everyone but themselves for their lack or regular game-time. Some sign on the dotted line knowing very well that their chances of breaking into the team are slim, as they have more than three teammates to fight it out with for a position in the team.

In most cases the players go into these moves with the ‘It-won’t-happen-to-me’ attitude only for history to repeat itself. The next step? Both the player and the agent blame the coaches and clubs for the player’s situation when they knew exactly what they were letting themselves in for. When the money is already in their accounts, they then ask to be released from their contracts!

While the role of the agents can’t be taken lightly, in fact some of them are even willing to bend over backwards to help their players, but questions have to be asked about whether they all really have the best interests of the players at heart?

Do you think they really care about the players’ well-being or is it just about the numbers and the money for them?

Please let us know what you think.

Cheers
VeeJay
