Vincent Kompany is in a response to VTM News especially hard for the makelaarswereld. ‘There are fantastic people also a lot of bad people in football.’
The defender of Manchester City, is not surprised by the news. “The link is very closely tied with the practices of the world of human trafficking, drug trafficking and prostitution’, says Kompany. ‘In those worlds is a lot of money to bid, and the hidden transactions are also possible. There are a lot of good people, but also a lot of poor people in the vicinity of the football.’
The Red Devil calls for total transparency in transfers. “What I do not understand is that the transfer market internationally is not completely transparent in the meantime. Is there anyway of speculation about wages of players, that it probably doesn’t matter whether their wages are known. Make it completely transparent so that everyone must answer for what they bill. Obviously, a broker or mediator is important for a player to protect their interests and also that of the club. But why it is still not transparent, I understand not at all.’
Kompany and the other Red Devils are preparing for the diptych Switzerland/the Netherlands. The match against Switzerland, Friday at 20.45 hours, the second duel in the Nations League for the Devils. Tuesday evening (also to 20.45 hours) take the men of coach Roberto Martinez the Netherlands in a friendly match. Both match at the King baudouin stadium.
