Q: My son is 14 years old, is this too young to have an agent?
A: A player cannot sign a contract with an agent until the year he reaches 16. A pre-contract agreement can be offered by agents for players who really stand out but until the player is 18, written consent of a parent of guardian is needed for the deal to be processed formally.
Main roles and duties of a football agent include:
Broadly speaking, the role of the football agent is to look after every aspect of their clients career, to allow the player to concentrate on playing football.
Initially the role of the football agent is to negotiate employment and endorsement deals for their player. The agent's workload is at its highest when their client moves clubs.
The agent will take a cut (usually 5%) from a player's wages.
No deduction should be taken from youth players wages
In addition to finding sources of income, agents often handle public relations matters for their clients. They work closely with them to promote themselves as a product and in turn to make money.
