Big Fish Aspires To be Football Agent
Contributing to sustainable sports development in Botswana is what the Executive President of Glamour Sports International aspires to do, but he faces a big challenge of raising funds close to P700 000 in order be licensed to assume his duties as a fulltime certified soccer player agent. It is one of the FIFA requirements that one has to possess a minimum of such an amount in order to be qualified.
“I am talking to four potential financiers,” the 36-year old told Gazette Sport recently. He did not reveal the names of those people to avoid jeopardizing proceedings but noted that amongst the business people he is currently in talks with; one is a former football administrator, the other one is a transport magnate currently involved in football, and the last one owns a property conglomerate.
Big Fish said that he is also planning a possible tie with a legal consultant. He is currently eyeing someone with a great legal background in local football. “He would be an ideal partner because of his legal dynamics,” the Serowe-born radio personality insisted.
While involved in attempts to source such huge funds, he is also working tirelessly to familiarize himself with the market. He told Gazette Sport that he has sourced contacts from the neighbouring South Africa and as far as Cameroon. “I have identified potential partners in South Africa, I’ve been engaged with a number of clubs there,” he said. In Cameroon, he is in contact with an agent with close ties to overseas based players.
