Sahar and agent split
CHAMPIONSHIP QPR’S on-loan striker Ben Sahar has parted company with super-agent Pini Zahavi.
The player’s mother Batya Sahar said: “Pini is a great agent but to our regret he is a one man show. We think that mistakes have been made because there is no day-to-day handling of Ben. The decision to separate was mutual.”
The Israeli teenager is expected to sign an agreement with an English agent in the coming days.
In an acrimonious response, Zahavi revealed: “I’m prepared to be Ben Sahar’s agent but not his mother’s. He can succeed but not with a mother like that.”
The move comes with the 18-year-old’s career seemingly in freefall. After making three appearances for Chelsea as a substitute and becoming the youngest ever player to score for Israel last season, he has spent the majority of the current campaign on the bench for the Championship strugglers.
Batya said: “Ben is a Chelsea player. If things do not work out there are plenty of other Premiership club interested in him.”
