Udinese and Black Stars player Emmanuel Agyemang Badu says about 80 percent of football agents are fake.

In an interview on Kasapa FM’s Dwedwamu, the midfielder said years after dealing with many agents, he has observed that eight out of ten are fake.

”As for the agents more than 80 percent of them are fake. You know me I speak my mind. Once I was approached by an agent who said oh I have a club for you in England; can you give me a mandate? And you know because in England you need a mandate before you negotiate on behalf of any player, I had to give him.

“That was during the time when Liverpool had expressed interest. The deal went bad because it turned out that he went in there to mess it up. So I have grown wiser now,” he said.

Adding: “My current agent is examining a number of deals. We speak every day and he tells me he receives about 300 phone calls. So let’s see what will come out of it. But in the meantime, I am committed to Udinese. I had a good season last year and would want to continue that form.”
