Do you know how many pages are in the Fifa Regulations on the Status and Player’s Transfer?
The Answer is: 15 pages
15 pages of legal jargons that could take you few hours to read, but years to fully understand. Of course, you could pass the examination and become a licensed Intermediary with your country’s FA, but it may end up just theory at the work place. In practical terms, you require skills and the right connections (network) to succeed in the business.
In this part of the world in West Africa, we have a lot of talented players , but few teams to absorb them. So many mediocre player’s Agents have a lot of players in their hands, but no connections to transfer them to clubs home or abroad.
These player’s intermediaries struggle to find the right trials for their clients, or how to negotiate deals…many of them have not seen where a deal is concluded before.
I am not trying to run you down, but to proffer a solution.
But what if you had a secret weapon. An angel that will take you by the hands and let you be part of the whole process in the transfer of several players, so you can experience several scenarios. A Mentor in Stellar group and their impact on negotiating player’s salaries, cap hits and more.
What if the mentor is willing to teach you the ins and outs of transfering players and is ready to introduce you to people that matters in the business…you quickly become a world class agent yourself or what do you think?
I don’t know about you, but if I was, or wanted to be an agent, or work in a team scouting operations, or player management, I’d take the time to learn the intricacies of the business direct from an expert.
In case you are still wondering what the secret weapon is, let me state it in clear terms. Internship in a world class agency will unveil you to world and you can set your own sail after few months or years, as the case may be.
Start today and apply for an Internship. First, search for contacts of some of the big agency you know and send an application letter for 6 months or a year internship. You will surprise at what response you will get.
