Agent of England boss Hodgson cops FIFA fine

Roy Hodgson's agent, Leon Angel, was warned by Fifa about his future conduct after breaking rules in a transfer involving the Brazil keeper Heurelho Gomes, reports The Guardian. Angel breached two clauses in players' agents regulations during the deal that took Gomes to Tottenham from PSV Eindhoven in July 2008, Fifa said.

The case was referred by the English Football Association to Fifa in June 2011. Less than a year later, Angel worked with the FA to help negotiate Hodgson's contract to become England coach.

Fifa's disciplinary committee fined Angel £4,840 and ordered him to pay costs for the disciplinary process.

Fifa said it warned Angel that a further breach "will result in more severe sanctions … even a withdrawal of the players' agent licence".
