Over the years Jonathan has become synonymous with sporting success, from initially discovering and nurturing major talents such as Glen Johnson, Peter Crouch and Ledley King in football, managing world record holding cricketer Brian Lara and being the only man to have been involved in managing two heavyweight world boxing champions at the same time in Lennox Lewis and Michael Bent.

His success and influence even reached world leaders, when Nelson Mandela asked him to help bring the West Indies and Pakistan cricket teams to South Africa following the end of Apartheid.

More recently, Jonathan’s most notable success culminated in the world record transfer of Gareth Bale to Real Madrid.

In 24 years Jonathan has established the largest football management business in the world.
