Meet the ex-Bucs captain who is now negotiating deals worth MILLIONS as a football agent

Behind every successful athlete, there is an agent pulling the strings in the background for a better professional life on and off the field. In this day and age few football agents are recognised more than the players the represent.

The role of an agent can not be emphasised, football has grown into a business that footballers can't do anything without them.

It is largely known that agents are professional individuals who represent the interests of a player, which includes negotiating professional and juicy contracts anywhere in the world. It is well known that taking a job as a coach or football pundit isn't for everyone upon retirement.

As one of the most seasoned footballers of his time Zimbabwe international and former Orlando Pirates midfielder Edelbert Dinha has since taken a different route upon retirement. The Harare born former footballer currently works at Shumba Sports Management. The former Orlando Pirates star player is the agent of Archford Gutu and as well as Rodreck Mutuma. The two listed players currently ply their trade in Zimbabwe and the Democratic Republic of Congo respectively.

According to their website we have also went to learn that Dinha also serves as the Head Coach at Simba Football Development. According to sources the development side of Shumba blends and unites over 80 young stars of all abilities and culture from areas such as Sandton, Bryanston, Alexandra and Tembisa just to name a few.

In a career spanning for over 15 years, Edelbert Dinha enjoyed career success in his native country before moving to South Africa where he went to feature for Ajax Cape Town, Orlando Pirates, FC AK and as well as Mpumalanga Black Aces. It is without a doubt that his successful spell came during his time with the Bucanners where he went to win the league title in the 2002/03 season.
