The Daily Mail have made Liverpool fans smile today in the Football Transfer Tavern after claiming that young star Jordon Ibe is more than happy to let his parents deal with his new deal and not bother getting an agent.
Now as our regulars note over a couple of games of pool with our landlord, you don’t really hear that too often and these days you have ‘super agents’ dictating the every move of players and pushing for money and birthday cakes for their clients, making contract negotiations a total nightmare.
Ibe claimed: ‘My parents are sorting that out with the club. Hopefully everything will just get sorted by the end of the season.’
We think this is really good to hear from Ibe and the fact that he clearly has a good head on his young shoulders bodes well for his career and stay at Liverpool, which is more than can be said for some.
Liverpool fans. Is this refreshing to hear when you have spent the whole season dealing with the likes of Raheem Sterling’s agent? Let us know your thoughts below.
