What my clients say

"My job is to be the best professional footballer I can. I need similar likeminded people away from football who understand finance and are cautious in planning my affairs. Together with my agents, BSG Valentine collectively ensures that all my off field financial matters are taken care off and I can simply concentrate on my career."

"Sport is a business and every top footballer needs help and guidance. Melvyn completes my business team and provides regular updates on my financial affairs.
