The Southgate agent is involved in financial machinations

The agent of the England national team manager has become embroiled in two scandals.

It recently emerged that Terry Byrne owed former England players Gareth Southgate, Joe Cole, and Glenn Hoddle after unilaterally investing £25 million in the purchase of several large office spaces in central London.

The second high-profile controversy stems from Byrne's prolonged dispute with the Football Association after they prematurely terminated the contract with his company '1966 Entertainment' in 2018, a contract that was previously extended until 2030. Byrne is demanding a seven-figure sum from the Association, while the FA seeks to avoid a high-profile legal case.

The tarnishing of Terry Byrne's reputation and the revelation of his financial dealings could lead the manager of the Three Lions, Gareth Southgate, to sever ties with him.
