Benjanigate: Pompey And McKay Charged By FA

Reuters London reports tonight that every City fan's favourite agent Willie McKay has been charged along with Portsmouth FC for 'breaching their rules over the transfer of Zimbabwe striker Benjani Mwaruwari to and from the club...'

'...Under the FA's Football Agents Regulations, agents are prohibited from acting for two different clubs in two consecutive transactions involving the same player...
The FA allege that McKay acted on behalf of AJ Auxerre when Benjani moved from France to Portsmouth for 4.1 million pounds ($7.68 million) in January 2006 and then acted on behalf of Portsmouth when he moved to Manchester City in January this year for 8.0 million pounds.'

Maybe controversial but it has always been known that Willie has been bent. he has been working with a teflon coating for years to the fact that the task force has not been able to charge him with any thing. I am sure we will be ok with this charge, and be let off with a technicallity. Maybe we should now distance ourselves as a club from him, horses and everything!!!!!!!!!! What do you think guys???????

I'm sure his mate Barton could recommend a good prison!

Doesn't McKay handle Stephen "stay at home because you are transferred to Sunderland" Ireland?
