Wayne Rooney's Agent Banned from Practicing

Monday, July 14, 2008

A disciplinary commission for the English FA has banned Wayne Rooney's agent Paul Stretford for 18 months and fined £300,000 for misrepresenting Rooney's interest when he first signed to Stretford in 2002.

The FA brought nine charges against Stretford under FIFA agent regulations and the committee found him guilty of seven of them. Stretford plans to appeal, saying the banning was "a travesty". The ban will not go ahead until the appeal has been heard.
