UEFA To Increase Funding For Woman's Game

Women's football is set for a 50% funding increase from UEFA, funded by profits from the men's European Championships. UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said: "The potential for women's football is limitless. Increasing the participation and the role of women in football has been one of my main objectives, both before and after I became Uefa president." Personally I just do not care less about women's football, it should just be football, not men's and women's games, just like you would not segregate it for the colour of skin or anything else. All this nonsense about women not being able to cope with the physicality of the game is just noise to keep them separate. The game is so soft at the top end nowadays that there is no way that can be true. Why not just give them a chance to fall or stand on their own two feet by making it a truly universal game?


Cisse Apologises To Put

Guinea's coach Paul Put has accepted the apology of midfielder Ibrahima Cisse, the 24 year old Fulham player, after his goal celebration was angrily aimed at Put. Cisse was brought on as a second-half substitute in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier and scored within 2 minutes before the celebration. Cisse said on social media: "I want to apologize to the public, the coach and my teammates who may have been hurt by my celebration. It was more of a rage associated with the joy of having scored my first goal for my country. I let myself get carried away by my emotions and I apologize. Long live the Syli."


Smith Flattered To Help Develop Terry

Dean Smith, who has just been appointed head coach at Aston Villa after a period in charge of Brentford, said he was 'flattered' that John Terry wanted to work on his development as a coach under him. Former Chelsea, Villa and England captain Terry has retired from playing to move into coaching with the Villans. Smith told BBC radio: "I can tap in to John's knowledge base, from the coaches he has played under. It is a team that will work very well together. John knows the football club and he is starting now his fledgling coaching career. To be honest, I was quite flattered that he wanted to work under us and develop as a coach under me as well. I'm really pleased that he has chosen to do that. I want people who are there to challenge me, who want to get better and improve."


Caldwell Takes Thistle Job

Partick Thistle have appointed former Scottish international Gary Caldwell as their new manager after the sacking of manager Alan Archibald last Saturday. Brian Kerr has been appointed to assist the 36 year old who has previously managed Wigan Athletic and Chesterfield. Caldwell said: "I am extremely excited to be here. Right from my first interaction with the club, I have been impressed with how the organisation is run. It very quickly became clear to me that there are positive and exciting plans in place, backed up by a strong structure from top to bottom. There is a huge amount of potential in this squad. But it won't happen overnight. We can't do it on our own either, I need support from the fans and so do the players. If we are together, I have no doubt we can achieve a massive amount."


Kompany's Dad Becomes Mayor

Manchester City star Vincent Kompany has a father who is making history as Pierre Kompany was elected as mayor of the municipality of Ganshoren in Brussels, becoming the first black mayor ever to be elected in Belgium.


Levy Claims Stadium Will Not Affect Transfer Spending

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has again reiterated that the massively overrunning on time and cost new stadium that the club is building will not directly affect transfer spending. This despite a lack of summer signings by Spurs, the first time any Premier League club has not made a single signing since the current transfer window system was set up in 2003.


Turan Charged Over Nightclub Brawl With Singer

Prosecutors have charged Arda Turan following an alleged brawl with Turkish pop star Berkay, which left the singer with a broken nose. That was followed by the on-loan Barcelona star turning up at the hospital Berkay was in with a gun which allegedly went off during the incident. Video clips have floated around allegedly from the hospital showing a gun being thrown on a table and one showing the aftermath outside of the nightclub where the alleged assault took place in the aftermath of the incident.


FA Hits Out At Rioting England Fans

Video footage of England fans damaging cars and throwing a glass at a passing car in Seville emerged ahead of England's Nations League match with Spain in the city. The FA released a statement saying: "We condemn the unacceptable behaviour witnessed in Seville. With the Spain fixture still to come on Monday night, we urge those following the team to respect our hosts and act in a responsible manner."
