Imagine the world of football without Mino Raiola. It’s impossible to imagine such a thing. Raiola is one of the most powerful men in football and the influence he’s got over the sport is just… astonishing.
So how did someone who was washing dishes and helping in a family restaurant manage to become one of the key people in football? It all happened thanks to him being smart and not throwing opportunities away.
Mino Raiola is an agent to many world’s football stars. Zlatan Ibrahimović, Paul Pogba, Romelo Lukaku, Henrikh Mkhitaryan or Mario Balotelli – these players are where they are today not only thanks to their skills but also thanks to Raiola.
There are not many agents who work like Raiola does. By that, I mean a lot of agents are just trying to make a deal so they’ll get money. Raiola is on a whole different level. His clients are like a family for him and he would do anything for their good. Him being an agent is not a work, it’s a profession he likes to do. That’s why he’s so good at it and that’s exactly what he wants from the football players who are a part of his portfolio. To not be driven by money, but by the love to the game.
Mino Raiola is taking his profession seriously. It’s every football player’s dream to have Raiola as an agent. It’s obvious that without him, many stars would never achieve what they achieved because thanks to him, every deal is possible.
