The OL-trained dribbler has been in conflict with his former agent Jean-Pierre Bernès since his abortive transfer to Liverpool.
It is still not clear why the transfer of Nabil Fekir at Liverpool, in the summer of 2018, collapsed at the last moment. At the time, the Liverpool Echo had explained that the leaders of the Reds had been cooled by the state of the knee of the left-handed dribbler (now 27 years old). But Jean-Pierre Bernès, the agent of “Nabillon” at the time, then accused the player’s brother-in-law of having wanted to resume negotiations with Liverpool in order to pocket a commission.
The player trained inOL, who then signed at Betis against 20 million euros, is very angry with Bernès. Asked by beIN Sports, he again returned to his aborted transfer to the Reds. “ It didn’t all turn out the way I would have liked it, the way I would have liked it, but that is fate. Afterwards, there are things that were said about that, which hurt my family and these people, in this case on behalf of my agent… He said that my family had come, who ‘she wanted commissions “, He says, assuring that his family did not interfere in this operation.
“That’s bullshit! “
Before delivering a rather astounding confidence: “ It was a day before playing against the United States, in Lyon (June 9, 2018, editor’s note). My agent calls me in the evening, at 10 a.m., and says: ‘we sign tomorrow’. But me, in my head, I was going to sign after the World Cup. As if he had learned it at 10 a.m. This is fuck-up! But that’s okay, it’s like that, no problem … »
If we understand Nabil Fekir, Jean-Pierre Bernès, who is also the confidant of Didier Deschamps, therefore asked him to initial his contract with Liverpool on a match day, which was in this case the last test of the Blues before to settle in Russia to compete in the World Cup …
