Financial Fair Play challenged by hard-hit football agent

A FOOTBALL agent from Belgium is challenging UEFA’s financial fair play rules at the European Commission on the basis that it will lead to a drop in agents’ income.
Daniel Striani is being represented by Jean-Louis Dupont, the lawyer who in 1995 secured the Bosman ruling that allowed players to move on a free transfer at the end of their contract.
Dupont believes the ‘break-even rule’, which prohibits clubs in European competition spending more than their income, “infringes EU fundamental freedoms” such as free movement of capital, of workers (players) and of services (agents), and that overspending should be allowed
He said: “In short, the current prohibition is in practice illegal.”
