De Rosario agent: This is not a trial

Comments Off on De Rosario agent: This is not a trial

The identity of Dwayne De Rosario’s agent has been revealed.

Wednesday’s Scottish Sun quoted agent Dave Baldwin, stating his client was simply training with the club, not trialing. Toronto FC was publicly embarrassed when it claimed the club’s all-time leading scorer was trialing with Celtic without the approval of the Reds’ front office.

But Baldwin said there is a distinction between “trainee” and “trialist.”

“One thing that has to be stressed here is that Dwayne is NOT on trial at Celtic as has been stated in some quarters.

“There has not been a better player in the MLS over the last five years than De Rosario and at 32 he has no need to go on trial to prove himself.

“This was a chance to train with a top club like Celtic and see how they operate, one Dwayne was desperate to take.

“He didn’t want to lie idle in the MLS off-season. He wanted to stay in shape and keep learning as a footballer and we will see what develops from here.”

Baldwin is with the U.K.-based Base Soccer agency, which also represents the likes of Juan Pablo Angel, Tottenham midfielder Aaron Lennon and Rangers striker Kenny Miller. This is no mom-and-pop firm.

Base also facilitated the moves of Danny Dichio and Carl Robinson to Toronto FC in 2007.

There is no mention of De Rosario on Base’s list of clients on the company website, but Baldwin did confirm to The 11 that the firm is De Rosario’s new agency of choice.

“I wouldn’t want to comment on all the facts with regards to Dwayne right now,” Baldwin wrote via e-mail, “but will gladly do so when we see how his time at Celtic pans out.”
