Looking for football agents in Norway – a way to quick money desired by many.

Posted by African Press International on January 31, 2007


“*Norway’s professional soccer agents are awash in inquiries from hopeful youth in Africa and South America vying for a spot on a Norwegian team. Not all of them even play soccer, though.

Per A Flod, who’s the agent for soccer star John Carew, says he simply deletes the inquiries he receives by e-mail.

“Many of these people aren’t even soccer players,” Flod told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) on Tuesday. He suspects they’re contacting him as a means of trying to illegally immigrate to Norway.

Flod has decided it’s not worth his time to try “to sort out the pearls,” calling it “a much too demanding job.”

Fellow agent Gunnar Martin says he also gets as many 25 inquiries a day, and that he doesn’t pay attention to them either.

Most of those writing say they’re between 17 and 19 years old, and the majority is from Nigeria. Flod says he can’t rule out the prospect of good players among them, but that many shouldn’t even call themselves players.

“Creativity knows no boundaries,” he said. “People will do what they can to get to Europe and what they think is the land of milk and honey.” *”

    well i am solomon, in india, all the email are from players who want make a aliving from the game, realy some will be very good players, but some may not make it in a bigger way, but the mean important thing is that they want leave the local leauge in african and come where they can make it and help there families, so there no big deal in that, but the right move have to be made so that yu get the type of players yu want, so if they come to norway or any part of europe and play, if they pass the text , then good, if they dont pass the text, then yu send them back, i am in india i got some players from my continet african to india some make it and they are doing well, and some didnt and i send them back home, so everything human being does there is a risk, yur repot is good but try and help in any way, i amonce a player,played in nigeria and in uganda and in india, but knee injury stop me not to moving ahead, but now i am coach of my own football academy in navii mumbai india,its call young shall grow football academy, trying to bring football to india from grassroot, bye and God bless, solomon
