In Viborg dreamed about to get access to a closed dreamland - a great agentvirksomhed that could provide good players to the club in the future. But they got instead a nightmare by the name of Bernio Verhagen.
And just like Verhagens past is very mysterious, spreads also a thick fog, when the talk falls on, who made sure to get the dutchman placed in the Danish 1. division. Which agentnetværk, which would open the door for a string of profiles.
Neither Viborg or Verhagen wants to contribute to the elucidation.
"you must ask Viborg, for they have signed an agreement not to talk about the name in the media," says Verhagen B. T. Sport.
The Dutch football player - if the word makes sense in this context - Bernio Verhagen has had a few turbulent weeks, after he in the beginning of november, was presented as Viborg FF's last reinforcement.
The 25-year-old winger was first accused and ago notified by his chilean girlfriend, who claims that he has perpetrated violence against her and has kept her locked up in a hotel room in Viborg.
And much to suggest that Verhagens days in the cathedral town soon spoke, after B. T. Friday morning could reveal that Verhagens club cv is characterised by a great mystery that he has not played one professional game of football, and that several of the player's former clubs deny all knowledge of him.
It smells in the least of a farewell in the club's press release Friday afternoon, stating that 'working on a solution for the future with Bernio Verhagen'.
But there are still plenty of unanswered questions in the case. For whom is the kingpin, who has made sure that a 25-year-old amatørspiller in eight months, has been shopped around to clubs in Europe, south America and Africa? And have made sure that he now ended up in otherwise well-functioning Viborg FF?
the team he will play for Viborg FF, Jesper Fredberg, sitting probably with some of the answers. But he has in recent days is not the answer on the B. T.'s call, but on Friday he said to the newspaper:
"We have retrieved him through a network. It is to care for the network, that we have taken him into. So we get the opportunity to attract other players."
Viborg FF has to B. T. not wish to elaborate on what and who this network is composed of. And the mystery takes in the whole, when you are trying to track down hollænderens agent - which in normal cases can clear up with a few mouse-clicks.
John Comitis - president of the Verhagens south african eksklub, Cape Town City FC will provide to B. T., that in his time negotiating with a Dutch agent - known only as 'Mo' - from the big international agentfirma Stellar Group.
"No," said Bernio Verhagen.
"No, Dimitri got me to Cape Town. Here he collaborated with some other agents. I do not work together with Dimitri anymore."
"He has his own company. I ask him, what his company is called. I don't know the name. He has a base in Moscow."
"I'll send his contact information. He is actually from Moldova. Tiraspol is his hometown. He has worked in the club for many years before that as press secretary."
"Yes, I know him. But it was through the Dimitri that I came in contact with the people here. I am working with other agents now."
Bernio Verhagen explained to B. T., that he was initially discovered by the Russian agent Dimitri during an amateur event in the Netherlands.
But he will not tell which agent he is working with now. Yes, he claims, as mentioned earlier, that Viborg should have signed an agreement with such agent that his name must not be mentioned.
The information would the newspaper like to have been both the team he will play Jesper Fredberg and director Morten Jensen, but Morten Jensen says that one does not want to contribute further to the matter, and that they will come out when there is news in the case.
B. T. follows the case.
