It’s commonly known that Jorge Mendes is the most successful and wealthy agent at the football industry;
At the other side Raiola brokered the world transfer record £89m move of Paul Pogba to Manchester United,it’s a body to body battle between those two.
The thing that all these tree top agents have in common is that they knew the possibilities of their clients,they believed in them,they expanded the 100% of their possibilities.
Beside hard work and talent at the end human relations is what truly matters the most.
The next Christiano or Pogba is might waiting for his “Jorge” or “Mino” or “Jonathan“.
Truth is,there are a lot of unrevealed football talents looking for a scouter or a “intermediary” – agent,asking for the chance to make their dreams,reality.
Since there no regulations on being an agent and there is no special certificate required anyone can be an “Intermediary”
But with who they should become partners ?
Who is the “best” agent to get represented ?
The good news are that if you are a proffesional football player with a great value or talent soon or later you will get scouted,either from football teams or from companies like us,Footballcorp Eurosport.
To your journey of football success either as a player or agent or even a club you will have to avoid a lot of obstacles and difficulties,you will have to use these obstacles as stepping-stones and let them lead you to something better.
Even when a football club recruit a player the human factor plays a great importance at the decision of buying the player or not.It’s literally, who you are.
The human factor is the key to success,the faith that great things are achieved by being the best version of your self,being loyal and frank with your clients and have love for what you are doing.
