FA boss Greg Clarke says 'no issues' before England appointment: Sam Allardyce

Allardyce



Due diligence was carried out on Sam Allardyce before his appointment as England manager, says Football Association chairman Greg Clarke.

Allardyce, 61, left his role in September after 67 days in charge following a newspaper investigation claiming he offered advice on how to "get around" rules on player transfers.

Asked by MPs whether the FA looked into previous allegations against Allardyce made by a 2006 BBC Panorama programme, Clarke said no significant issues were found.

In response to Panorama, then Bolton manager Allardyce denied claims he had received illegal payments from agents.

An inquiry by Lord Stevens later suggested that he may have had a conflict of interest with his agent son Craig Allardyce, but it found no evidence of irregular payments.

Allardyce's stint as England manager lasted only one match following his appointment in July.

The former West Ham, Newcastle, Notts County and Blackburn boss was filmed in July 2016 telling undercover reporters it was "not a problem" to bypass rules on third-party player ownership and claimed he knew of agents who were "doing it all the time".

The Telegraph investigation also claimed that a £400,000 deal was struck for Allardyce to represent the Far East firm the reporters claimed to work for, and to be a speaker at events, although Allardyce said he would have to "run that by" the FA first.

Allardyce said he "made a significant error of judgement", but that "entrapment had won" following his departure from the England job.

He added: "Although it was made clear during the recorded conversations that any proposed arrangements would need the FA's full approval, I recognise I made some comments which have caused embarrassment."

Clarke said the FA is still waiting for the Telegraph and police to release the full information from their investigation.

Answering questions from MPs at a Commons select committee into football governance, Clarke said Allardyce was given a pay-off when he left England, but refused to disclose the sum.

On Friday, FA vice-chairman David Gill told BBC Sport that Allardyce's exit was a "complete disappointment" and that "no-one saw it coming".

Hollande warns unions against disrupting tournament

French President Francois Hollande has warned against attempts to disrupt Euro 2016 with strike action, as the football tournament gets under way. France has been in the grip of industrial action, mainly over reforms to labour law. Train drivers are threatening to strike on a line serving the Stade de France in St Denis just outside Paris, where France play Romania in the first match. Meanwhile, a brawl in Marseille led to two England fans being arrested.

Tear gas was fired and police in riot gear were on the streets after the incident outside a pub shortly before midnight on Thursday. England play Russia in the city on Saturday. Football fans arriving in Paris and several other cities this week have been greeted by the sight and smell of uncollected rubbish sacks as trade unionists blockade incinerators. The country is also on high alert since the jihadist attacks on Paris in November - one of them at the Stade de France - and is recovering from flood damage in central and northern regions. Mr Hollande said everyone had a duty to ensure that the competition was allowed to proceed without incident.

"I appeal to everyone's sense of responsibility because if the state must do its duty - and it will, it will take all the measures that are necessary," he said on Thursday. "At the same time, it is also necessary that those who are taking part in actions, or who are organising them should also shoulder their responsibility... so that this great event can be a shared popular festival." Transport Minister Alain Vidalies told Europe 1 radio that if the government had to "issue orders" for trains to be driven to get fans to the opening match, "we will do so"

Sports Minister Thierry Braillard appealed to the unions to think about the football fans. "While there are times when strikes can take place, we are now on the eve of an event during which they are going to prevent some fans from getting to the stadium," he said. "That's just not normal."

But train driver Berenger Cernon, secretary general of the CGT union at the Gare de Lyon in Paris, was unapologetic.

Euro 2016 security

  • 90,000 police and other security officials to patrol fan zones and stadiums
  • Paris to have security force of at least 13,000 to patrol two zones and two stadiums
  • Seven million people expected to visit 10 French cities from Lille in the north to Marseille in the south
  • State of emergency in place after last November's jihadist attacks in Paris in which 130 people died
  • Officials deny a report that Paris prefect Michel Cadot asked for the Eiffel Tower fan zone to be shut
"It's not us who determine the calendar," he said. "We did not decide that the Euro will take place on this date. There is a social movement going on now, the re-organisation [of labour] continues, the labour law continues. "We want the negotiations on the collective agreements be open for everybody. So yes, clearly this will disturb the Euro [tournament] and we will continue the strike."  He added that efforts were under way to try to resolve the situation although so far they only concerned the state rail company (SNCF). 

Nearly 3,000 tonnes of waste have gone uncollected in Paris, according to the authorities. Zahier, a waiter in a restaurant in the Latin Quarter where rubbish spilled out of bins into the narrow, cobbled streets, told AFP news agency: "Customers are looking out at the dustbins, so obviously it's making them lose their appetite."  Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo told French TV: "Of course, all the rubbish will be collected... it is already being collected." Another problem is a planned four-day Air France pilots' strike, set to start on Saturday as many football fans fly in. Talks broke down on Thursday but Air France chief executive Frederic Gagey said he expected that 70%-80% of flights would operate on Saturday.

Two England fans arrested after Marseille clash


Two England football fans have been arrested after police used tear gas to disperse a brawl in Marseille ahead of the first Euro 2016 games. Police said one of the fans was arrested for assaulting a barman and the other for violent disorder. One England supporter suffered a head injury after being hit in the face with a wooden chair. Police in riot gear were on the streets after the incident outside a pub shortly before midnight on Thursday. The clash with locals took place outside the Queen Victoria pub in the Old Port district.

Ch Supt Steve Neill, who is a British policeman in charge of England fan security in Marseille,said: "About midnight last night there was confrontation between a group of local youths and some England supporters.  "Local police moved in very quickly and utilised some tear gas to disperse the local youths and close the pub. "The use of tear gas seems quite dramatic to us from England and the United Kingdom because we are not used to seeing it - but in mainland Europe it is a regular tactic and they restored order fairly quickly."

Footage of the incident showed men hurling chairs, a fist fight outside a McDonald's and chanting England fans surrounded by police officers with dogs. Ambulances were seen arriving after police carrying riot shields moved in to separate the crowd and tear gas was used to clear the area. "We need to keep it in context - there are thousands of England supporters who will come here and have a fantastic time," Ch Supt Steve Neill said. "There is a small minority who drink too much and get involved in some anti-social behaviour."

Supporters have travelled to Marseille ahead of England's game with Russia on Saturday. Kevin Miles, chief executive of the Football Supporters' Federation which runs the fans embassy in Marseille, said: "It's the police's job to prevent a confrontation and they used French methods to do so, which we're not particularly used to. "They used tear gas, which is a little bit indiscriminate for my liking, but it did the job and the problems were over."


Wales not a one-man team, says Gareth Bale


Gareth Bale has dismissed the notion Wales are a one-man team as he prepares to spearhead their Euro 2016 campaign. Wales face Slovakia on Saturday in what will be their first match at a major tournament since the 1958 World Cup. Although Bale scored seven of Wales' 11 goals in qualifying for Euro 2016, the Real Madrid forward does not feel under more pressure than his team-mates. "I want to enjoy myself on the football pitch, like you do when you're a kid," he said.

"The Welsh side here now, we're all like brothers. We're friends, we joke around and play together but, when it comes down to serious business, we all fight for each other. "We have fun at the same time. We want to come here and enjoy it and, when you enjoy your football, you play your best." Bale came on for the final half an hour of Wales' 3-0 friendly defeat in Sweden on Sunday, his first international appearance since October.

Wales manager Chris Coleman opted against starting the 26-year-old after he had appeared to struggle with cramp as he played the full 120 minutes of Real Madrid's Champions League final win against rivals Atletico the previous weekend. The listless nature of Wales' performance in Sweden before Bale's introduction prompted the likes of former captain Kevin Ratcliffe to raise concerns about the team's over-reliance on the former Tottenham forward.

However, Bale refutes any suggestions he is the only attacking threat in the Welsh side. "It's never a one-man team. There's 11 men on the pitch for a start," he said. "For us, it's a squad thing. 'Together Stronger' [Wales' motto] is there for a reason. We don't just say it for no reason. "We all work hard as one unit. We attack as one, we defend as one. When we lose the ball, we all fight back together. "People write stories, they can write what they want, but we all know we work very hard on the training pitch every day and, come match-day, we work even harder."

France kick off tournament amid security, strike and weather fears - Euro 2016

Euro 2016 kicks off on Friday when hosts France face Group A opponents Romania at the Stade de France amid an unprecedented security operation.

France remains under a state of emergency after last November's attacks on Paris, when 130 people were killed. More than 90,000 police, soldiers and private guards will be deployed at the tournament, with seven million fans expected to visit the 10 host cities. The US and British governments have both warned fans they could be at risk.
But organisers Uefa and French authorities insist they have done everything possible to keep the 2.5 million spectators expected at the 51 matches safe. 
Paris alone will have a security force of at least 13,000 to patrol two zones and two stadiums, with the country's state of emergency allowing police extra powers to conduct searches and put people under house arrest.
France coach Didier Deschamps, whose side were playing Germany in an international friendly when the Stade de France was targeted by suicide bombers, says November's attacks evoked "very strong emotions".

"We lived through some tragic moments," he said. "So it will remain with us, even if with time we can think about it a little less. "Today to have zero risk doesn't exist, sadly, but we have to go forward and these Euros have to be a festival of football and festival has to be as beautiful as possible." Richard Walton, the Metropolitan Police's former head of counter-terrorism, said the threat to Euro 2016 is "more acute than for any other international sporting event in history". With a reported 500,000 British fans among the seven million supporters in France, the British Foreign Office has warned that stadiums, fan zones and transport hubs are possible targets for attack. 

England goalkeeper Joe Hart insists players will adhere to the advice of security officials at the 24-team championships. "We're a team of footballers, but we're a group," he said. "We work together with the security and press officers. "Everyone's got their various jobs and I'm very confident on everyone completing them."  France's junior minister for sports, Thierry Braillard, said official fan zones are the only outdoor public spaces where screens will be installed, with bar and restaurant owners told not to host large outdoor TV broadcasts. He added: "We can't accept unorganised gatherings because police forces don't have the means to secure them." Paris is just one of nine host cities preparing for the tournament, with games also taking place in Bordeaux, Lens, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Nice, Saint-Etienne and Toulouse. 

Jean-Christophe Bouvier, defence secretary for the Lille region, says 200 security staff will be inside the city's fan zone, with 3,400 police and military forces working each day and hundreds extra on call if needed. President of the Lille region, Damien Castelain, said: "It's a very secure place in the fan zone. "It's easier to secure one place like this one than have people going to several places where it would have been impossible to make people safe." Mat Bastard, Lille's Euro 2016 Ambassador, added: "If France win, it'll be so, so good, but my first victory is everything is well and everyone has fun."

Ranieri close to signing new deal


Claudio Ranieri is close to agreeing a new £3 million-a-year deal with Leicester City. The three-year extension should be signed in June.
Ranieri will be rewarded for his remarkable season with a significantly improved deal and official confirmation is expected next month.
Negotiations between Ranieri and the Leicester board are said to be “progressing well” and it is thought a three-year extension will be on the table.
He signed a deal worth around £1.5 million a year when he was appointed in July but Leicester have moved quickly to offer him a new contract that will double his money.
Ranieri is attending this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix, after returning from the club’s post-season tour of Thailand, and talks are set to conclude in the next few weeks.

Reading eye Stam as manager

Conte will refuse to sell Willian to Manchester United



Jose Mourinho is keen to bring the Brazilian to Old Trafford but is set to be denied by his former side, who have no intention of selling their Player of the Year to a rival.
New Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will refuse to allow Willian to join Manchester United but is happy to let Oscar to leave this summer.
Jose Mourinho is keen on a reunion with the Brazilian but Conte does not want to risk upsetting fans by selling the club's Player of the Year.

I'll stay at Chelsea


The Belgium international says he is not thinking about his future currently but has admitted it would be difficult to leave Stamford Bridge after a poor season for the Blues.
Chelsea midfielder Eden Hazard wants to stay at Stamford Bridge, but will not make a final decision on his club future until after Euro 2016. The 25-year-old endured a difficult season in 2015-16, making 25 Premier League starts and scoring only four goals having netted 14 in 38 during the 2014-15 campaign. And recent speculation has suggested that he may be poised to end his four-year stint at the club, with former boss Jose Mourinho reportedly interested in taking him to Manchester United.
Hazard, however, appears keen to stay put and confirmed that he has already briefly talked to incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, with the two set to meet in person on June 13 when Belgium take on Italy in their Group E opener. "We spoke together a little," said the Belgium international. "We just said we'll shake hands at the end of the [Belgium v Italy] game; it's as simple as that. "And, of course, so far yes, it means I stay.
But in football we are never sure of nothing. I cannot tell you yes at 100 per cent and tomorrow I leave; that's uncool. We never know. So far I am focused on the Euros and I am getting ready for them, then I'll think about Chelsea. Hazard, who will skipper Belgium at Euro 2016 in the absence of the injured Vincent Kompany, also went on to reveal that he would find it hard to leave Chelsea on the back of such a disappointing campaign.
"For sure it will be very complicated for me to leave like that, after such a bad season," he said. "I want to end well in Chelsea, so far, I can say I'm almost at 100 per cent [to stay]."

Mesut Ozil is happy at Arsenal and will discuss a new contract with the club after Euro 2016.

Newspaper reports on Thursday suggested Ozil had delayed talks with the Gunners. Germany international and the club had always intended to negotiate a new deal after the conclusion of Euro 2016, and not before. While in Dubai last week, Ozil said: "I still have two years contract with Arsenal, as you know, and we will be in talks with the club and we'll see what happens in the future. "But as I said, now I'm concentrating on Euro 2016 in France, which is very important for me and my team after the last World Cup. Then later on, I will see what I do with Arsenal."
