BeIN Sports pundit Brahim Thiam being investigated for illegally acting as an agent for Yunis Abdelhamid

L’Équipe report that a preliminary investigation has been opened against BeIN Sports pundit and journalist Brahim Thiam for allegedly acting illegally and posing as an agent during this summer’s transfer window.

The agent of 32-year-old central defender Yunis Abdelhamid, Alain Gauci, formally complained to the French Football Federation about Thiam’s behaviour via letter, alleging that Thiam had ruined his transfer window strategy for his client by calling several clubs about the player and acting as if he was a FFF registered and licensed agent.

Matthieu Bourrette, a prosecutor in Reims, confirmed that this legal matter was ongoing but that no conclusion has been reached in any capacity as of yet.
