If they have footballing skills – that would be rather nice but not essential.
If they don’t have footballing skills, how the hell have they made it up through the academies and youth teams. We’ve released young players with greater skill levels than some we have under contract now! I play on. Sunday evening with guys who have a better first touch than Loft, and retain the ball better than Hippolyte.
Football agents are like the stereotype used car dealers. “Got a lovely little runner here. Only 25,000 miles on the clock and four new tyres”. I bet young Swann just takes it for a quick test drive without even looking under the bonnet or checking for rust! That or takes the modern approach and buys online having just seen a two minute video clip.
Might as well set up a “Vinted” type website for clubs who want to get rid of/buy players.
