Sa­har and agent split

The Jewish Chronicle - - SPORT - BY SI­MON GRIVER

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.”
