Liverpool fans took aim at Bobby Duncan’s agent after he was banned from acting as an intermediary for six weeks and fined £10,000 by the FA for his conduct on Twitter back in September.
Should Liverpool extend James Milner's contract?
The 18-year-old joined from Manchester City in 2018, describing the switch as a “dream move”. However, Rubie said that Duncan was being kept at the club against his will and ensured that his client made the move to Serie A.
The English youngster is yet to make any first-team appearances for the club but has scored three goals in eight appearances in the Primavera 1, the Italian reserve league.

The FA did not take too kindly to the behaviour of the football agent and handed out a ban to Rubie, who is also required to complete an FA Education Programme within four months.
Supporters laughed at the expense of Rubie after his FA hearing and made their feelings clear on social media about his punishment.

That’ll show him 🤦🏻♂️
Wouldn’t it have been more effective to ban him for the whole of January, so he couldn’t broker any deals?

He is the classic face of the murky greedy underworld of football agent leeches.

obviously the lad isn’t as good as he taught he was probably ends similar to so many others who wanted it all too quickly. The agent is obviously not the best either you don’t slag off a whole club like that just to get a move both of them are proper babies
