“An agent who, two years in, might be making an attempt to revenue once more and take him some other place, is simply massively disrespectful to all of us mainly, and to the membership particularly who’ve served Miguel so nicely.
“I’ll have a dialog with him after all, however Miguel is an unbelievable professional and has a terrific angle to all the things.
