[Football agent Jonathan Barnett slams Berkovic for not taking his kick in the head like a man. (Oh - Barnett is Hartson’s agent, by the way)] I think Berkovic has been cowardly and despicable in the way he has acted

[Jonathan Barnett on his client Gareth Bale] I’m sure that he will be the best player in the world. He will win the Ballon d’Or. I told the Barcelona president and Jose Angel Sanchez, and they laughed. They don’t laugh much now!

[With rumours suggesting his time at the club is coming to an end after he refused to celebrate with team-mate after scoring for Real Madrid last week, Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett entered the debate as he spoke to Sky Sports] This generation of Real fans will be talking about Gareth’s goals for years to come. Frankly they should be ashamed of themselves. Gareth deserves the greatest of respect. The way the Real fans have treated Gareth is nothing short of a disgrace. In the six years he has been in Spain, he has won everything. He is one of the best players in the world. Those fans should be kissing his feet.

[The lack of interest in Bale is particularly frustrating for Madrid, given the Wales international has little desire to facilitate a transfer] He’s got a lovely life and home in Spain. I think it would take something exceptional for him to leave and loans are not on the menu.

[They will not be the only ones in the mix, though, if a scramble is sparked for a prized signature, with Saul’s agent Jonathan Barnett admitting as much] Somebody like Saul Niguez doesn’t need anybody to push him. He’s so good and everybody knows that and they know a lot of clubs want him. But he’s already at a very big club. He has a very good relationship with Atletico Madrid and Atletico fans
Every good player is linked with another club. Some agents may want to do that and if they need the press to do something, then they are not very good at their job. It’s journalists trying to write things. It may be true or may not be true, but it’s something we as an agency at Stellar don’t really get involved in
