What is an Intermediary?
An Intermediary, otherwise known as an Agent, is someone who oversees professional and personal aspects of a football player’s life. These include overseeing the negotiations of transfers, contracts and sponsors to player relationships with clubs, friends, education and their own finances. An Intermediary acts as a guiding figure throughout a player’s career, making decisions based on what is best for the player and what the player wants.
