Sir Alex Ferguson has alluded to Wayne Rooney’s contract stand-off being driven by the player’s advisers after claiming that agents, rather than players, are the root cause of difficulties in negotiations.
This seems logical. You are, after all, a highly successful and experienced manager and businessman, you employ a number other of such. The players, on the other hand, to judge from the post match interviews, are inarticulate, thick as pig-shit chavs.
Thus the existence of agents: to even things up a little, to make sure that you and yours don\’t end up walking all over them.
Being \”difficult\”, you see, that\’s the purpose of agents. To be difficult on behalf of their clients.
