How Cristiano Ronaldo's Agent Became My Representative- Zaidu Sanusi Opens Up




Nigeria international left back Zaidu Sanusi has revealed how he came in contact with the agent of Cristiano Ronaldo, who is now his agent.

Zaidu spent three years in Portugal starting with Gil Vicente where he spent two years before dropping to third division side Mirandela. It was while he was there that he was converted to a left full back.

He also played as the left central defender in a back three at same club and it was during a game in the Portuguese Cup that Santa Clara spotted him and wasted no time in signing him.

Playing in the Portuguese first division for the first time he showed no nerves with how he acquitted himself to the demands of the league. It was however a surprise when he moved to league giants FC Porto after just a year.

Porto sold Alex Telles and immediately went for the relatively untested Nigerian and he has so far not failed their trust particularly last season. He was by far one of their most consistent player putting to bed speculation that he wasn’t wanted after struggling a bit in his first season at the club.

What came to many as a suprise as well was how Jorge Mendes, the agent of global football icon Ronaldo became his agent in less than a year in the Portuguese top flight, Zaidu recounts how it all started with the owner of GestiFute company.

” It was quite straightforward if you ask me. He saw me and got my contact. I had no agent at that time. We had this connection from the get go and knowing who he is. I couldn’t have said no. He has helped me grow in my game and as a man as well”, he exclusively told OwnGoalNigeria.com in a chat.
