Hulse Hits Out

Hulse Hits Out

Luton manager Mike Newell has been hammered by agents for his claims that a bung culture is a major part of football. But Leeds striker Rob Hulse gives him his full backing.

Hulse: 'Mike has been very brave to come out like he has. Unfortunately nobody has stood with him. It's been going on for years and we are kidding ourselves to say it doesn't. But how you stop it I don't know.

'You have to question where the money from some of these deals is going; on some occasions it is not going where it should be.

'That money is going out of football and Championship and lower league clubs certainly need the money. I think agents are an evil necessity, especially for young lads earning a lot of money.

'You need good financial advice and help with things like finding property when you move and a good agent can do that for you.

'But there are some sharks out there who will look to move players on as often as they can and you do hear of certain players who later question why they made particular moves when they did.

'Most agents are looking after players' interests, but there are the odd ones who are taking money out of the game.'
