Southampton chairman Krueger: Right time to get control of agents' world

Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger is disappointed about the scandals engulfing English football.

The 57-year-old Canadian told ESPN that this week's reports in the Daily Telegraph alleging a culture of illicit payments between agents and managers had "shocked" and "upset" the Saints board.

"We've been a club that's been driving, wanting to get control of the evolving agent world around us and we believe we're going to have ears now," said Krueger, a former ice hockey player who went on to coach Switzerland and the National Hockey League's Edmonton Oilers.

"We're going to use this, for sure, as a club, to fight for change and to fight for more regulation.

"We are all for regulation, and we are one of the most disciplined clubs in English football in terms of the way we deal with agents and youth academy players."
