Q: I have been released and have no club: how do I get back onto the footballing ladder?
A: Firstly, you must not panic. Although the previous club may not have wanted you, that does not mean that nobody wants you. You need to get your name out there so clubs recognise you and your ability. As well as this, you need to observe the guidance posted on `I am above the age of 16 and want to become a professional footballer, what do I need to do?` at the top of this Question and answer page.
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.
