Winnie is now the head of the sports law department at Ronald Fletcher Baker LLP. This firm operates in Istanbul and London. Although as a child Winnie had always dreamed of attending university, the player inside him always called out to him and said that he had to make a mark as a player first. Even after playing 300 games, the idea of college always stayed with him. So, he started taking a part time degree with later went on to become a full time degree. He graduated with Honours from the University of Paisley in law and economics.

Winnie chose the subject An Introduction to Scots law and then changed it to English law. He specialized in laws concerning the sports. London and Manchester are the major centres of this and the Premier League players and clubs provide enough opportunities for the future in sports law.

Winnie specializes in breach of contract, image rights, contracts and employment issues. His past sports life has helped him a lot as he could learn a lot from experience. He is mostly focused on football and what’s waiting for it in future. According to him, the most significant change the world has ever seen involving agents of players will operate and will start from April of next year. This thing will have a huge impact on on the game and its member assossiations because as surveyed by FIFA only 30% of the transfer deals that have been carried out are by licensed agents.

Winnie is also ready to take over issues that concern pay rules and regulations. The former fullback is all set to shine in his new field and tackle anything that comes along.
