Craig Hutchinson Interview
By: Tony Hamilton
TONY Hamilton caught up with football agent Craig Hutchinson, who had Martin Pringle on his books, and asked him a few questions about his job.
What did you before you became a football agent?
25 years an oil trader on the spot market.
Is there a reason why you live where you do?
I like the weather and easy for movement while living in Monaco.
Who are your main clients in England and where do they play?
Four Fulham players (Goma, Legwinski, Djetou, Bonnissel), plus others in the Premiership.
Would you recommend a player to come to Grimsby Town and why?
I would because of the name and he could become a hero if the right player went to the club.
Why did you get into being a football agent?
I was asked to by Pringle and Legwinski (top) because they were unhappy with their own agents.
Who is best manager you've dealt with and why?
Chris Coleman, he's a straight guy and not all of them are.
When you dealt with Grimsby Town what was it like? Good or bad?
Which football clubs won't you do business with and is there a reason why?
Any club run by an old guard manager.
What's it like dealing with the old guard football management when you're dealing with players?
Very difficult because they use the same agent all the time and don't like newcomers in this trade.
What's Martin Pringle doing now and with him being retired from football is he helping you in any way?
He is still a friend and will use his expertise in finding the right player I want for other clients.
Do you watch football yourself if so which team?
Newcastle, Monaco, Nice
If you weren't an agent what other profession would you like to be in?
An archeologist because I'm interested in the Incas and things like that.
Who will win Euro 2004 and why?
France or England or the host nation Portugal.
Do you read the Fishcake if you do what do you think of it?
I like it and used it a lot when Martin Pringle was going to move here as homework for what the area is like
Would you ever want to be involved with a football club? If not why?
Yes I would but would have to stop being an agent.
