LinkedUp?

Back from my usual holiday weak of (for the most part) being a bum, its time to transition from Christmas season to the goodie season. And sometimes, they fall in your lap. And sometimes, they publicly fall in every lap. Such is the case with Demy De Zeeuw, an out-of-contract two-way midfielder with high level experience. There is no need to guess whether good ol' might be interested in coming to America - he posted that answer right on his LinkedIn page. Any MLS team should hurry to drop a line.

Is this the beginning of the end of agents? Technology, bitches.

I like it! This seems on par with the music industry - you'd need an agent to get your big break and make your name, but once that happens, all of the dinosaurish PR stuff can get lost.

I agree. If/when I get into doing books, I will likely skip the industry and distribute them myself.

As a general rule, footballers, are not smart enough to represent themselves. Dummy, I mean demy is a prime example

Setting aside the question of how you tested his intelligence, De Zeeuw does have an agent. But it is a new approach to the process for someone of his CV.

I only base my opinion on his link. Any quality baller willing to go join the khalifa system in the Middle East can't be that bright. Speaking of bright, I highly recommend Solitude Utah for any wannabe powderhounds

Right, but also practically explained that it would require a different level of con to attract him to certain destinations. Sounds like a business move to me. Does not mean I would do it, but then I am not him.

Honestly, I'm not sure I'd put my age in the first sentence of my resume. Certainly not if it is on the wrong side of thirty. And let's face it, the only thing salary depends on is what a club is willing to pay him.
