Daniel Gomez

CEO

As CEO, Daniel oversees Proball Group’s global operation. Daniel studied Sports Science and Leisure Management at Brunel University London. He is also a fully qualified UEFA coach/coach educator and is fluent in both Spanish and English.

Daniel started his playing career as a schoolboy with Charlton Athletic Football Club after coming to England at a young age.

He subsequently returned to Colombia and was part of the Deportivo Cali team that were runners up in the South American Champions League (Copa Libertadores), narrowly losing on penalties to Palmeiras of Brazil in the final.

The ensuing interest from British and European teams resulted in Daniel´s return and he went on to have spells with several top clubs before a road traffic accident prematurely ended a promising career.

Daniel´s passion for the game led him to continue working in football as a consultant to some of the most prestigious sports agencies in the UK, advising on the transfers of South American players, to the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

After several years of building a solid reputation and a wealth of contacts worldwide, Dan set up the Proball Group.

Daniel´s knowledge of football and the football business is respected on a global level. Through the Proball Group he advises professional players and clubs, national federations and multinational corporations. He also headed a team responsible for the brokering of an international commercial sponsorship contract for world superstar Lionel Messi.

European Partner

Danny had a stellar playing career as a striker, beginning at Alex Ferguson's Manchester United.

After retiring from playing, he worked within a prestigious UK agency as an intermediary and advisor.

After several years of successfully building up his client base and network, Danny took the bold step of branching out independently.

As well as guiding the careers of his own personal clients, Danny advises and partners with Proball Group in brokering deals for high profile South American players to Europe, Middle East, China and the USA.

His wealth of experience and knowledge as an ex-player and respected TV and radio personality makes him an invaluable member of the Proball Group team.
