About three months later he asked me if I would like to become involved in the business. At the time Liverpool University announced its footballing industries MBA, I was on the point of joining him full-time. He agreed to sponsor my MBA.
The course has been great because it has given me a thorough understanding of the footballing industry and some very good, high-profile footballing contacts. I also continue to manage three players - a Spurs player, a Bournemouth player and the under-21 captain for Wales - for the agency.
I will be the only agent in Britain with an MBA. Nobody else will have that business background and grounding behind them.
My ambition is to be an ethical football agent. A lot of agents these days are intent on taking as much money from the game as possible. Whereas from every fee I earn from a player, 50 per cent will go back into grass roots football. So I am going to sell my image based on that."Reuse content
