Player agent Patrick Busby has recently been leading the scouting of FC Twente. This is remarkable, because Busby works for the estate agency of Wessel Weezenberg. Technical director Jan Streuer of the Enschede team understands that this raises questions.
“You could think of a conflict of interest,” says Streuer in conversation with TC / Tubantia. Even before the technical director started working in De Grolsch Veste, the club had contact with Busby. “I immediately said that I understand that as a club you have to do something, because there was no scouting at all anymore. But at the same time I added that I don’t want certain players to be pushed through. I only want the best for FC Twente,” and we determine. “
In the end, one player from Weezenberg’s stable came to Enschede: Tyronne Ebuehi. “Through their office we were also very close to a great African talent of 19 years old, but that just went wrong. He is now at Barcelona”, Streuer continues. “Patrick has a large network. He has worked for Ajax, FC Groningen, Brighton and HSV. He has a lot of experience and we could use that well.”
