Manchester’s Mob Films produces Bosman documentary for BT Sport


Manchester’s Mob Films has produced a documentary for BT Sport marking the 25th anniversary of the pivotal Bosman Ruling.

The Ruling, named after Belgian footballer Jean-Marc Bosman, who won a case at the European Court of Justice, meant that players could leave clubs for free at the end of their contracts.

BT Sport will premiere ‘Bosman – The Player Who Changed Football’ on BT Sport 1 HD on Wednesday December 9 at 10.15pm.

The documentary is presented by former French international David Ginola and examines how the Belgian player took on European football’s governing bodies, changed world football, and in doing so, ruined his own career.

The documentary features interviews with Bosman and those closest to him, together with agents, managers and players including Steve McManaman, Rio Ferdinand, Eni Aluko, Glenn Hoddle, Sam Allardyce, Paul Lambert and Robin van Persie.

Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, said: “This is a powerful yet rarely-told story, that pays homage to the eponymous hero and his incredible life story. Despite still being relatively unknown to many fans today, his dedication and perseverance has shaped modern football as we know it: we are honoured to be part of his journey and help amplify and raise awareness of his journey.”

The production was led by Executive Producers Rod Brown and John Brocklehurst for Mob Sport, with Sally Brown, executive producer for BT Sport. It was produced and directed by Ben Jones and produced by Mob Sport’s Liam Taylor-Rutterford.
