Uli Hesse in Germany

There's been a lot of talk during the current transfer period in Germany about those ruthless, egotistical, deluded, pampered, spoilt and overpaid specimens known as football players; their cold-blooded, shifty, greedy, perfidious, devious and cunning sidekicks called agents and the almost limitless power that the combination of the two wields in the world today. The debate was triggered when an unnerved Wolfsburg at last waved goodbye to £27 million striker Edin Dzeko, who'd been at the centre of transfer speculations for 18 months running before joining Manchester City, and it was followed by no less than three well-known players asking (or even demanding) to be let out of their respective contracts: Hoffenheim's Demba Ba, Schalke's Jefferson Farfan and Hamburg's Ruud van Nistelrooy.
