Ronaldo and Quaresma fire their Agent.

In another piece of good news for Sporting, both Cristiano Ronaldo and Quaresma have fired their agent, Jose Veiga.

For those of you who don't know, Veiga is a very powerful agent who represents a large number of Portuguese players, including Abel Xavier, JVP, and Figo. He is also Jardel's agent. However, he also represents over 30 different Benfica players!!

After the BS with Jardel, I think the less amount of our players he represents, the better. Veiga basically controls Benfica, and I dont' want him to wield that much control over our club as well.

As of right now, Veiga only represents a handful of Sporting players: Jardel, Paulo Bento, JVP, Carlos Martins, and Ricardo Fernandes to name a few.

Viva Sporting - 2001/2002 League Champions!!!

2002/03 Xtratime Fantasy Football Champion - Viva Sagres & Bifanas!!!

Best news I Heard in weeks!
Maybe now we won't sell players as stupidly as we have in the past.
Like I said Jose Veiga is one of the main reasons Portuguese soccer(club) is the way that it is!

Besides the obvious dangers that come from having so much control of key players concentrated in the hands of one guy, what has this guy done to earn your enmity Penguin. I'm not defending the guy, I admit to not being in the know, but I'm curious.

Do you think you can lurk un-noticed in the Sporting CP forum?

Pila, would you mind NOT barging all threads you see onto the offtopic course plzkthxs.

I think it will be a mixed thing for them because they are still young and do not know that much about the industry and how it functions so they're going to need to find a new one quickly.

My off-topic banter is still worth more than your on-topic nonsense.

This forum already has a moderator. In fact, it has two of them. Unlike you, they have enough wisdom to know how to handle me and my fodder.

Try and wait for puberty before you gain the audacity to attempt directing traffic. Okay, son?

The kid's gotten to you again has he.......

Back to the topic, Veiga is the Scott Boras (Agent in Baseball for Bonds and A-Rod) of Portuguese Football. I wish others would follow in Quaresma's and Ronaldo's footsteps....

actually Pila was not wrong to bring up the lawyer thing becuase there are similarities with these agents.

Everyone dislikes agents who are aggressive and pushy sharks, except when you have problems and it's time to hire an agent (or lawyer) yourself. Then you want the meanest most aggressive one you can get.

But apparently this guy is had gone too far.

Perhaps if you yell out "get the hell out" a few more times... maybe I'll actually go. Try it a few more times, I'm anxious to see if it'll impact me as much as the first time. I can feel it... I think you're almost there, don't quit now… I'm almost leaving…
