Mino Raiola Biography, Wiki

Born in 1967, Carmine ‘Mino’ Raiola is originally from Nocera Inferiore in Salerno, southern Italy. Just one year after his birth, his family made the move to Haarlem in the Netherlands, the place he’d grow up in and eventually call home.

The young Mino Raiola displayed his dynamism quite early on, working at his family restaurant (called ‘Napoli’) before starting his own company at the age of 20. He had been a decent footballer, playing for his local club but at 18, he knew he’d never forge a top-level career and hung up his boots.

He’d joined law school by then, so he knew his way around the legal hurdles – just two years later, he joined the board of HFC Haarlem, his hometown club. However, that adventure didn’t last very long.

The young Raiola began to forge his own path, first as a player and administrator and then as a budding agent at a player agency called ‘Sports Promotion’ – and that’s when the fun started.

His success would know no bounds, as he struck an incredible deal with the Dutch players’ union to represent all of the Netherlands’ footballers!
