Mike Newell's comments regarding bungs in football were bound to cause tremors from the top to the bottom of the game.
His claims of being offered under the counter payments to fascilitate transfers were heard all around the world, and now the man in eth firing line have had their say.
Jon Smith, Jerome Anderson, Jonathan Barnett and Michael Kennedy represent the likes of Ashley Cole and Thierry Henry, and their message to Newell is clear. Show us your proof.
'Mike Newell now needs to put up or shut up. Come out with it all and name names to the relevant authorities,' said Smith.
'Newell can't turn his back now. He needs to say who he has been approached by and what he was offered.'
Earlier today, Newell claimed to have once been offered an inducement by a club Director, and says he is prepared to name names to the FA.
Meanwhile,the 4 agents condemned any payment of bungs as 'a disgraceful practice' and stressed that they were happy to co-operate with any FA investigation.
If what he is saying is true, Mike Newell cannot be the only manager to be offered cash payments illegaly. The question has to be, why has no one spoken up before?
