Agent uses Linkedin to find 'playmakers like Xavi or Kroos'
Richie O’dare is seeking a couple of players for a Spanish 3rd division side.

THE WORLD OF football agency is renowned for its glitz and glamour. The high-profile names like Jorge Mendes and Mino Raiola are celebrities in their own right, earning a fortune from representing some of the game’s biggest stars.

But spare a thought for the other guys. Guys like Richie O’dare.

Earlier this week, Richie, whose Twitter profile says he’s an African football scout, posted a message on social networking site LinkedIn with a pretty specific (and not at all optimistic) request.

It remains to be seen if Richie will unearth a couple of gems. But suffice to say, we’ll be following this with interest.
