Recently, football lawyer Daniel Geey and football agent Erkut Sögüt attended Mumbai to help teach The Football Business Certificate, educating current and future leaders about best practices of the global football industry. While there, Daniel and Erkut kindly agreed to answer some questions for me on topical issues in football. In this interview, I asked Daniel for his opinions on the following questions:

  • What is the role of a football lawyer?

  • What exactly is football law?

  • Should football adopt an NBA style transfer system?

  • What are some of the most memorable deals that you have been part of?

  • Is there a need for stricter regulation of who can own a football club?

  • How can football be promoted India?
