As you all know, in modern sports, players need a good manager to make the best deals for them and best career moves.
In the last years player contracts are becoming more and more expensive and cost millions of euros meaning that it's player management is a VERY profitable job, since managers usually earn a big commision out of players contract.
This gives way to new innovative marketing ideas that bring more and more people interested in sports and more people earning out of it.
Real Player Manager is a company that is consisted of football players managers.The managers, besides the professionals, can be everyone!
Me, you, everyone! Imaging having 1% of Christiano Ronaldo's contract rights!!If he costs 25million euro, and being sold to another club for 30million, your 1% will bring you several thousand euros.You can use that money to invest more capital in your favourite player thus turning your 1% to 10% or just spend them wherever you like.
It is however clear that slow and steady, you can own a significant part of football player rights, therefore earning a commision out of it and of course YOU will choose about his carreer moves.
If you are not a significant percentage owner though, still there's lots of goodies for you.You are still involved in the decision making process through e-voting, polls etc, plus you get to talk to your favourite idol and you get exclusive items like autographed shirts, balls and other exclusive items of your favourite stars.
Either you keep them for your personal collection, or you sell them to ebay,
you are still earned and involved in the heart of the king of sports.
Regards

I thought Agents handled the players, and they are the worst thing to have ever happened to Football!

Any sport really. You start playing because you love the game. Then you sign with an agent, and next thing that happens is you have to start throwing fits if you don't get enough money, enough shoe, shirt, breakfast cereal etc contracts. Soon you forget how much you loved the sport and start focusing on how much money you can be making, or should be making, all because someone is telling you how much you are worth. Most of the time the agent is only concerned about his percentage, and that is why he is driving you to do more.

While I agree sports stars should be paid well, it is an odd world where someone can get paid millions for kicking, batting, shooting etc a ball around, yet teachers, firemen and police officers who save lives get paid so little. Just my 2p worth. grin

Not for me......Otherwise no live coverage here!
The scpapping of the maximum wage, and Agents, must come close to being the worst thing(s)!

maybe, but Sky's trumpeting of the Premier League as the best in the universe with a straight face while two mid-table sides grind out a 0-0 draw in mid-January is particularly jarring.
