Especially with young academy players you would like to know who advices your son the next years. Too many agents have a background as a fireman, plumber or pizza baker. They might have transferred some big names but would you entrust your own child to these people?
I have studied sports science in Germany and the US and worked in sportsmarketing for a long period. I also worked a s a teacher for more than a decade. I teached at a Elite School of Football and teached players that become even world cup winners.
Beside I always coached youth teams on a semi-pro level and I was board member of a huge sports club.
But my main focus during the last 20 years was to advice young players in how to become a pro player!
