After the disappearance of Mino Raiola, it is Rafaela Pimenta who is responsible for managing the affairs of the team. So she comes the most powerful woman in football.
Mino Raiola’s passing in April 2022 has led the super agent empire, which features the interests of Pogba, Ibrahimovic, De Ligt and others, to find a new boss. Initially, it looked like cousin Vincenzo might be the company’s new and only number one, but it was ultimately Rafaela Pimenta who was chosen to lead the mighty galaxy.
WHO IS RAFAELA PIMENTA?
Mino Raiola’s right-hand man in recent years, this multilingual Brazilian lawyer has played a key role in the company’s growth. Rafaela Pimenta didn’t work in the world of football initially, as she was part of the team of Brazilian President Cardoso, the country’s number one in the mid-1990s and early 2000s.
It was during these years that Raiola and Rafaela Pimenta met on Brazilian soil, as the agent began to make its way into the world of sports agents. This meeting led the lawyer to settle in Monte Carlo, playing an essential role in “One”, Raiola’s company.
Not to miss
In the “One” company in Monte-Carlo, a company in which Pimenta had parts in addition to Mino himself, it was Vincenzo Raiola who essentially worked, with important players under his thumb. The information concerning her is fragmentary: we do not even know her age.
WHICH PLAYERS ARE CONTRACT PLAYERS?
The list of players represented is long and filled with recognized stars of the world scene: Haaland, Pogba, Ibrahimovic, De Ligt, Donnarumma, Matuidi, Verratti, Balotelli, Mazraoui, Lozano and De Vrij, to name only the most famous. Football’s most powerful woman, Rafaela Pimenta, continues Raiola’s work after 18 years of collaboration.
