We would like to congratulate AMG client Jennie Lakip for signing with the defending champions of the Costa Rican first division, Liga Deportiva Alajuelense!

Jennie’s stellar season attracted much attention from teams abroad. However, she ultimately decided to turn down offers in Europe and the United States in favor of continuing her career in Costa Rica.

“I have thoroughly loved my time in Costa Rica. I was having a hard time with the idea of leaving so I’m thrilled to be able to stay longer and continue learning and growing as a player in such a wonderful place.” – (Jennie Lakip)

The entire AMG family is extremely happy for you Jennie! Your continuous dedication and passion for the game has brought you to this moment. Best of luck as you prepare for this new chapter in your career.

Agencia que representa a "Pipo" y Montenegro se expande por España

La agencia de Representación de jugadores Agrinzonis Management Group (AMG) continuó su proceso de expansión completando su fusión con la agencia GB Sports con sede en Madrid, España el pasado mes de abril.

Convirtiendo la agencia con sedes en Norteamérica, Costa Rica y Sudamérica en una de las más grandes del continente.

Dicha agencia representa a jugadores como Jurguens Montenegro, Yurguín Román, Yael López, Orlando Galo, Giancarlo González y otros.

Con esta unión AMG adquiere 30 nuevos jugadores con edades entre los 18 y 27 años que juegan en 17 diferentes clubes españoles.

Juan Vicente Carvajal Director General y Massoud Roushandel Presidente de la empresa estuvieron las últimas 3 semanas cerrando la operación, conociendo a los nuevos colegas y a sus nuevos jugadores, además de lograr cerrar el fichaje de dos de nuestros representados al Getafe CF de La Liga española.

“Nuestra prioridad desde el primer día siempre han sido nuestros clientes. Europa es el mercado de fútbol más importante y emocionante del mundo por lo que para ser llamados una agencia global debíamos expandir nuestra presencia en el viejo continente y así tener la capacidad de presentar nuestros clientes actuales a las organizaciones futbolísticas más prestigiosas del mundo” indicó Massoud Roushandel.

Gracias a esta expansión se han podido consolidar aún más lo lazos que se tenían con clubes de talla mundial e incluso se han ampliado las conversaciones por varios de los actuales jugadores de Centroamérica y Sudamérica que poseemos en la carpeta.

Agrinzonis Management Group Expands to Spain

Agrinzonis Management Group continued its global expansion last month by merging with Madrid based player agency GB Sport. Through this merger, AMG has inherited a portfolio of over 30 clients between the ages of 18-27 years-old who play across 19 different Spanish clubs. Representatives from Agrinzonis have been in Madrid for the past 3-weeks finalizing the deal, meeting with their new partners, clients, and club associates, and opening the office in Madrid. We were also able to complete the signing of two of our newest clients to Getafe CF of La Liga!

“Our priority from day one has always been our clients! Europe is the most important and most exciting football market in the world. While there are a few U.S. based agencies that have loose connections with agents or agencies in Europe, very few are invested in the market and have agents on the ground working daily. Collectively, we came to terms that in order to label ourselves as a global agency, we needed to do a lot more than just “collaborate” with agents in Europe. By having our own people working full-time in Spain we can manage current clients, scout, and recruit future clients, and continually maintain connections with clubs. This provides us a solid foundation upon which we can further our global presence, and it gives us the ability to present current clients to some of the most prestigious organizations in football,” – Massoud Roushandel, AMG President

We are overly excited for the opportunities we can provide for our clients due to our strong presence in the Spanish football market. As an organization, we look forward to giving our clients a direct pathway to European football in order to develop their careers and reach their fullest potential. As well as help our clients in Europe with aspirations of playing in North American leagues pursue that option.

This global expansion could not have been done without the hard-work and vision of our Managing Director, Juan Vicente Carvajal, and our President, Massoud Roushandel. We are extremely proud to welcome our new colleagues to the AMG family, Gerardo Garcia Berodia and David Sierra Manzanares, who were very instrumental in facilitating the merger. Also, a special thank you to our legal partners in Spain, Alberto Ruiz de Aguilar and Rodrigo Arias Grillo of Sportia Law.     

To our newly acquired clients, welcome to the Agrinzonis family! We are honored to serve as your agency and thank you for your confidence in us.

Jaziel Martinez Scores against Club América

Jaziel Martinez

AMG’s Jaziel Martinez had a night to remember in Dallas, Texas as CF Monterrey took on Liga MX powerhouse Club América in a friendly match. Jaziel received a cleared ball outside the box with a beautiful first touch and fired an unbelievable shot from 30-yards out. His goal in the 70th minute was his first for Rayado’s senior team.

Pepple Scores On Getafe U-19 Debut

Aribim Pepple

Former Cavalry FC youngster Aribim Pepple has signed for the Getafe U-19 side in Spain after spending two years in the Canadian Premier League, and he made quite a strong start overseas this weekend.

Following an Island Games campaign that saw the six-foot-one teenager make five substitute appearances for Cavalry FC, Pepple underwent trials with both Sheffield United and Leicester City FC. The youngster finally made his Spanish debut for the Getafe U-19 squad this weekend, scoring a goal in a 3-0 win over CD Mostoles URJC.

The 18-year-old striker had made fifteen appearances for Cavalry FC across all competitions, all of which came from the bench. In 2019, the Kettering-born youngster was invited to the Canada U-17 squad ahead of friendlies against Argentina and Mexico.

Cavalry FC head coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr. had told fans months ago that Aribim Pepple was not expected to return, with the youngster’s inclusion in a La Liga side’s academy representing a clear step forward for the teenager. The youngster had arrived to Spain last December following his aforementioned Premier League trials, reportedly weighing his options between a European move and a return to the CPL.

With Pepple evidently moving forward with Getafe, it’ll be interesting to watch how the teenager develops within the La Liga team’s academy system. Securing a goal on his debut this weekend is evidently a strong start.

Striker Jennie Lakip Becomes the first female client to sign with Agrinzonis

Jennie Lakip

It is an honor to announce Agrinzonis Management Group’s first female client in the organization’s history, Jennie Lakip!

Jennie is a natural born striker originally from Modesto, California. She attended Brigham Young University between 2008-2011, where she was a 2-time Offensive MVP and helped BYU win the Mountain West Conference title in 2008 and 2010. Reaching the NCAA tournament three times during her career. While attending college she met her husband of seven years Romy Lakip, who was playing for the men’s soccer program at BYU during that time.  

After graduating, she stepped aside from the game to focus on life outside of soccer. Jennie and her husband Romy are parents to a three-year-old daughter Malia and one-year-old son Leo. Throughout this time, her innate competitiveness and love for the beautiful game only increased. In 2019, while pregnant with her son Leo and watching the FIFA Women’s World Cup, she made the decision to work towards a career as a professional soccer player after her child was born. Her husband and surrounding community were extremely supportive and instrumental throughout her journey. Which has led Jennie to sign her first professional contract in Costa Rica!

Thank you for trusting us with your career and we cannot wait to see you on the pitch this upcoming season!

Jurguens Montenegro is making his dreams become reality

jurguens montenegro

Just seven years ago, playing matches on the beach in his native Puntarenas along the central Pacific coast of Costa Rica were part of the daily life of the teenager Jurguens Montenegro. He enjoyed those games, celebrating each goal as if they were world cup winners. At the age of 12 he already knew what he wanted for himself and, more importantly, what he wanted for his family.

“I love playing soccer, it makes me very happy, but it is also a way to help my family. My mom who has always been supporting me and my dad who, despite being an alcoholic, has helped me, as well. I’ve learned how bad decisions can have very serious consequences. That is why I fight every day to keep improving and to keep moving forward,” he says with a smile.
