First it was the evils of Facebook and now Labour MEP Nessa Childers has set her sights on dodgy sports agents - particularly those involved in football.
As the country goes World Cup crazy (and deaf thanks to those damned vavazelas), Childers has called for new laws governing the conduct of professional sports agents.
She claims that for every ‘Jerry Maguire’ legit sports agent, there is ‘a shady agent lurking in the shadows whose stock-in-trade ranges from match fixing to money laundering to everything else in between’.
She wants an end to these dodgy agents targeting vulnerable young players - and rightly so.
She has called on the EU to step in to show the red card to these chancers.
