"the Police: the Clubs do not do enough"
"Despite repeated pressure and an official agentförteckning is the police not happy with how the league and the elitklubbarna handle the problem with the criminal agents."
"– Many clubs do business with questionable people, " says Fredrik Gårdare."
"It's been two years since Fredrik Gårdare on the police task force against idrottsrelaterad crime warned Swedish football for the first time."
"– Swedish football and Swedish football association was informed that we saw alarming tendencies to serious organised crime, took a closer look at football's world and opportunities to come across the money there, " says Fredrik Gårdare in an exclusive interview with Sportbladet."
"Lianne, and Copenhagen has in turn informed the elitklubbarna in allsvenskan and superettan and introduced a certification system, where agents need to register themselves."
"But it is not enough, says Fredrik Gårdare, claiming that the police still see that criminal networks have an interest in football."
"– And, above all, when in agentsammanhang, " says Fredrik Gårdare."
"How do you look at the league's new certification and registration of agents?"
" I think it is good that football is beginning to take hold of it. From our side it is good if you brottsförebygger so it does not end in the case of threats, bribery and economic crime."
"I have to be honest...”"
"– But we see that there are contacts and done business with people from the network who is well-known to us. It can mean big problems doing business with the wrong people in the wrong way. If the clubs want to help brottsförebygga so, we are grateful, but I can honestly say that we haven't really seen it. Which is still a work of the clubs. I shall not hide the fact that several clubs are doing business with doubtful people from the known network."
"What is the network?"
" the Network that we recognize from other contexts and different forms of organised crime."
"– Yes, there are people who we have an interest there, " says Fredrik Gårdare.n– But for reasons of confidentiality I can't comment on individual names and companies."
"– and Partly of confidentiality regarding police law enforcement activities, but also the privacy of the individual. We must never leave out information that may be negative for any person."
"How should I do to not misstänkliggöra all the agents?"
"– It is a job for the football, believe Fredrik Gårdare."
"”Ongoing, intensive information campaign” "
"Tobias Tibell of Swedish Fotbollbollförbundet mean that it is right now, there is an intensive information campaign."
"– against Both the intermediaries, i.e. agents, but, above all, against the clubs and the players, so that they know what is what with these new rules."
" Our clear request to the clubs and players when they are contacted by an agent is to question if he is competent. The answer is yes, check it on our website and list, " says Tobias Tibell."
"If the answer is no, the call is to back out of the deal:"
"– Otherwise it's just to say no thank you and invite the person to obtain permission before it can be considered a collaboration. It is our most important parameter against players and clubs, " says Tobias Tibell at Copenhagen."
