Frank de Boer has claimed that agents ran Inter and ‘took up 50 percent of my time’ during his ill-fated reign in 2016.
De Boer lasted just 85 days as Inter boss, losing seven of his 14 games in charge, and the Dutchman is adamant he was doomed to fail.
“At Inter, we spent so much time dealing with politics, with agents,” the Atlanta United Coach told Yahoo Sports.
“That took up 50 percent of my time, when it should have been 10 percent.
“A [player’s] agent told me, ‘If I’d known you weren’t going to start my player, I would never have hired you as manager.’
“That’s how much influence he had on who was in charge.”
