Today’s guest is Colin Gordon. Gordon is the owner of Kidderminster Harriers, a non-league club based near Birmingham. Previously he was one of the founder’s of Key Sports Management, one of the most elite management agencies in football. Some of his notable clients included Steve McClaren, Theo Walcott, David James, and Steve McManaman. Before his career as an agent, he was a player for numerous clubs in a 10-year career.

In this episode we discuss: life as an agent, corruption in football, bungs, tapping up, how to conduct a big transfer, dealmaking in England vs. the Continent, what it’s like running a football club and much more. Even if you consider yourself an expert on agents, I assure you, you will learn something new in this episode.
