Napoli owner says football agents are ‘a cancer’….

Napoli owner Aurelio de Laurentiis says agents are a “cancer” on the game and insists players do not need them. “In Hollywood, the actor pays [the agent] himself. I don’t pay the agent. In soccer, why must I pay?” the Italian movie producer said. De Laurentiis said some transfer deals had fallen through due to disagreements with agents over players’ image rights. “You know, that’s a cancer of our domain,” he added. “Not every agent. But I don’t understand why you need an agent.”
