English player's agents threaten FA with Euro Court

The English Football Association is facing a massive legal war with the Association of Football Agents over its new rule book. The AFA feels that the FA has no right to tell its members how to do business or the way they get their payments from transfers and new contracts. "The FA have had the chance to talk these issues through, but they don't seem to take us seriously. But we know our ground and this will go through the courts. If that means the European Courts then it would mean a delay, as much as three years, but that suits us far more than Brian Barwick and his people, " one top AFA insider revealed to Alan Nixon of People.
