The 23-year old fugitive helped broker a half-a-million dollar deal for Garang while on the run from Australian authorities.
Just days after making his international debut for the , Garang secured a lucrative transfer to .
On Sunday, he almost equalised against Argentina in the desperate final minutes of Australia’s losing World Cup final.
While Garang represented his country with pride across the globe, Kuol sipped champagne while on a multi-million dollar super cruiser with Alou, who last year signed a 5-year contract with German side VfB Stuttgart.
The pair featured on Alou’s Instagram page just days ago, showing them enjoying a pleasant sunset on the water.

Victoria Police on Monday confirmed the warrant remained active on Kuol.
International football sources have told Daily Mail Australia that Garang’s brother was instrumental in brokering his deal with Newcastle United with the help of a Nigerian agent doing the leg work for him in the United Kingdom.
Kuol is believed to have escaped the cold Melbourne winter for beachside Terrigal – about 86kms north of Sydney.
Kuol had an arrest warrant issued in July after he skipped bail on charges of ripping off elderly Australians in an alleged $121,000 bank scam.
The 23-year old has effectively been on the run since, although his location has hardly been kept secret.

Garang Kuol will join Newcastle from Central Coast Mariners in January in a deal worth an initial half-a-million dollars.
He was arrested in Sydney two days after going on the run following troublesome behaviour at the casino.
Police sources have confirmed the Footscray man, from Melbourne’s west, appeared at NSW’s Downing Centre Local Court on July 28 where he was found guilty of four charges, including resisting arrest and handling stolen goods.
In a bungle, Kuol was released in NSW and has not been seen by authorities since.
Kuol has firmly hitched himself to his talented younger brother, professing to manage the ‘football affairs’ of both Garang and Alou.
Garang is considered one of the hottest young talents in Australia, being rewarded for his spectacular campaign with the Central Coast Mariners.
On Sunday, he played against legendary Argentinian Lionel Messi.

Kuol had been released back into the community on a $20,000 surety despite police objections.
He had faced Shepparton Magistrates’ Court in June after police charged him with eight bail offences and applied to revoke his bail.
The former bank employee had previously fronted court accused of stealing more than $121,000 from National Australia Bank customers where he was employed in country Victoria.
The reported the majority of the customers affected by Kuol’s alleged thefts were elderly and included a 95-year-old and a 76-year-old.
Police Gang Crime Squad’s Echo Taskforce Detective Senior Constable Daniel Chapman told the court Kuol was on bail with a $20,000 surety when he allegedly got another man to sign in for him at the police station on seven occasions.
Kuol also allegedly tried to sell 13 grams of cocaine to an undercover cop and used counterfeit notes to buy a PlayStation 5 off a Melbourne man who advertised online.
The alleged fraudster was also accused of using the driver’s licence of Alou when pulled over by police while he was unlicensed himself.

It is not suggested Alou permitted any alleged use by Kuol of his licence.
Alou set the nation on fire in June when he scored an amazing ‘scorpion goal’ for Australia’s under-23 side at the Asian Cup in Uzbekistan.
Police further allege Kuol used another person’s credit card to buy return plane tickets to the United States.
Magistrate David Faram granted Kuol bail despite his atrocious history of failing to obey court orders.
Mr Faram also varied Kuol’s bail conditions from daily reporting to just three days a week – a requirement he quickly ignored.
While wanted by police, Kuol continued to spruik his younger brother’s talents on social media, where he also takes digs at supposedly ‘bogus’ reporting on Garang.
‘Speculations, deadline days done. Only the family really knows the true answer,’ Kuol spouted in one rant against media reports.
‘Never refer to „third” parties, they’ve done nothing besides piggy backing the work another does on the park and evDen EVe nAKliyAT in life, manipulation is at an all time high in this current era.’
Anyone with information on Kuol’s whereabouts ought contact police or Crime Stoppers.
