Agents row breaks out over ex-Man Utd, Arsenal defender Silvestre

An agents row has broken out over Mikael Silvestre.

The Sunday Mirror says former Manchester United and Arsenal ­defender Silvestre is at the centre of a £250,000 row between two football agents.

The Manchester-based Kennedy McKeand ­Agency is threatening to take legal action against Lee Anderson following Silvestre's free transfer move to Werder Bremen this summer.

KMA is claiming that Silvestre signed a five-month representation agreement with the ­company in April.

It entitled them to a five per cent cut of the ­Frenchman's wages should he move to a club in the United Kingdom, Germany or Turkey.

When Anderson told Silvestre that he could arrange a move to Bremen, an ­agreement was struck which would see KMA waive its rights over the defender in exchange for a representation contract with the German club worth £45,000.

That contract never ­materialised.

Now KMA is demanding the £250,000 that ­Anderson is believed to have earned from setting up Silvestre's move to the Bundesliga.

The 33-year-old, who spent 11 years in the ­Premier League after ­joining United from Inter Milan in 1999, earns £50,000-a-week in ­Germany.
