Great Moments In Sports Agentry

The man pictured here is Claude Makelele, a midfielder for the Chelsea soccer team. He's married to some model named Noemie Lenoir; we think that's her in the photo, though honestly we have no idea. Anyway, another model says she's being having an affair with him. Who cares, right? Well, check out Makelele's agent's response to the rumors.

"He's denying it. But even if it was true, he's going to deny it. They're all at it, but when they're caught they deny it. He's going to be in trouble, though, because his wife is here and she's very nice. She's very sensitive."

OK, now that's amazing. That's some good agenting! This is absolutely how Scott Boras should have handled the "she-male muscular type" story.
