Cherie Blair turns football fixer to boost son's career as an agent

[ via Mail Online ] 18 Dec

Cherie Blair has taken time out of her busy international schedule to meet an unknown Mexican footballer to help boost her son’s sports agency business.

Reportedly, a car collected 17-year-old soccer prodigy Raul Mendiola from his family’s rundown trailer-park home in a Spanish-speaking suburb of Los Angeles and took him to the plush hotel where the wife of the ex-Prime Minister was staying.

Mrs Blair – who is a director of her son Nicky’s football agency, to which Raul is signed – spent time chatting to the footballer before posing for a photograph with the bemused youngster.

Just days later, in an apparent attempt to cement confidence in her son’s business, Raul’s mother Claudia Velador received a picture of a smartly dressed Mr and Mrs Blair, personally signed with the words ‘Thank you’.
