MTK Global, the management company founded by alleged cartel boss Daniel Kinahan, has confirmed its move in football.

MTK Global claimed that ties with Kinahan were cut in 2017, although he recently stated that he is independently advising some of their fighters.

MTK has not yet responded to a question from Sportsmail whether Kinahan would advise one of their footballers, or if he would be involved in some other way.
The football division is headed by Danny Vincent, 36.
Kinahan, who advised Tyson Fury and Billy Joe Saunders, has no criminal convictions but has been named by the Supreme Court of Ireland as a senior figure in organized crime, something he has denied.
He claims the charges are part of a “campaign” against him.
Kinahan was the subject of a recent BBC Panorama investigation, which revealed that he had not quit boxing.
