LIAM BRADY HAS landed a senior role with a UK sports management company, just three months after leaving his role with Arsenal.

The Gunners legend will link up with Platinum One, an agency which represents more than 80 young players, according to the company website.

In his new role, Brady will will work alongside all of FA Intermediaries in the company to identify and recruit talent, as well as provided counsel to the company’s elite players.

The TV pundit spent 13 years with Arsenal as a player during the 1970s and ’80s. He was then appointed as an academy coach at the club, before stepping down in 2014.

Brady later made a return to the Gunners to take up an ambassadorial role, which he held until stepping away in May.

Commenting on his new position, Brady said:

“When I finished with Arsenal my ambition was to undertake one more meaningful role within football.

“I had not anticipated working in a representation agency but I particularly enjoy watching young players and trying to guide them and their families as they progress into the professional ranks; this made Platinum One quite a natural fit.

“While I only left Arsenal last May, I finished working with the Academy in 2014; I have known Fintan Drury for over 25 years and some other senior executives in Platinum One since they were young players.

“The company endeavours to always go about its work centred on the player’s best interest which was the most critical consideration for me in taking on this role and I am excited about the challenge of contributing to its continued growth and success.”
