Default How to Become a footballing Agent?

Hey folks, just wondering if any one of you know how to get started by becoming an agent?
I am an African that have lived in Europe for years and now the U.S.
I have got couple of amateurs players in Liberia that are very good and been thinking alot of becoming a agent for them.
I grew up around George Weah, Christopher Wreh and some other Liberian footballers.
My country has been involved in a civil war for 14years so we've been out of the football world for awhile but now we got peace theres alot of young talents that are willing to make their name on the outside world.
Just don't know how to start representing them, Arsene wenger is one of the coaches that is willing to give African amateurs a start.
Any advice will be appreciated!

Yeah, I know everything about how to become a grossly overpaid for doing very little football agent. That's why I am living in the frozen north, sitting at a computer at 1.40am, surrounded by screaming kids, drinking metholated spirits and reading threads of stupid questions.
My sole wish in life is to continue life in abject misery and give some lazy bastard too idle to get off his arse all my wealth of money spinning knowledge.
Just out of interest, why didn't you ask George Weah or his agent or did they tell you you'd get better advise from a British expats forum?

If your Liberian players are as good as you say they are get them a proper agent. Especially if they want to play in the USA.

Liberia has been involved in a bloody civil war for the past 14 years, its was two days ago we had a peaceful elections with the help of the UN, and the U.S.
While I was in the U.K I tried to get a licence through FIFA, but the process is long and expensive (insurance and Stuff). i am headed to Liberia in december to get it through my FA.
I've taken players to Leeds, Portsmouth, Wigam amongst others, coudn't really negogiate because I didn't have a licence and the agent I was working with tried to close me outta a deal.

I am good friends with Ryan Giggs, He is currently unhappy with his representation. How long will it be before you are licensed?

oh sorry my mistake, I meant Bryan Giggs, the welder from Skelmersdale, he plays for Prescott in the East Lancs Sunday League.
