Former Asante Kotoko midfielder and now football agent, Yusif Chibsah has narrated how he became a football agent.
Yusif Chibsah who now represents over 30 Ghanaian players revealed that he was pressured into becoming a football agent by Black Star players Daniel Amartey and Majeed Waris.
“I started interacting with the Ghanaian players over there and established a Whatsapp group where we shared all our issues. Because I was there for a couple of years I knew the regulations and was helping players with the filing of taxes and other welfare issues,” he told Citi Tv’s The Tracker Show.
“It was actually the same boys I was mentoring, I was doing this for free as a way of helping my younger brothers and never had any intention of doing this as a profession or for money.
“It was Daniel Amartey, Majeed Waris and Reuben Ayarna who said I was doing a good job for them and felt I would do good as an agent. Some of them had agents already but were not getting the services that I was rendering to them.
“So they told me to give it a thought especially Waris who said I should consider it a a job. As time went on they kept giving me pressure until when I gave in,” he concluded.
Yusif now represents the likes of Majeed Waris, Daniel Amartey, Kwame Bonsu, Abdul Fatawu Safiu etc.
