Injury Round-Up



Managerial Changes

Chelsea have, as expected, appointed former Borussia Dortmund and PSG manager Thomas Tuchel to replace Frank Lampard. Tuchel is the 11th manager since Roman Abramovich bought the Blues in 2003.


Disciplinary Charges

Ross County midfielder Michael Gardyne's charges for alleged comments made during their defeat to Rangers last month have been dropped.

After former Fulham youth player Max Noble made claims of historic racism, bullying and threatening behaviour at the Fulham academy, the Premier League club are to investigate. A Fulham statement read: "We condemn bullying, racism and discrimination in any form and work hard to ensure that they have no place here. The club will investigate the historic claims and liaise with all relevant parties." Noble claims the experiences he suffered led him to consider suicide and they included being ordered to change to a particular agent or be dropped and that white players were afforded preferential treatment. Noble also said he received messages from over 100 other former academy players who had gone through the same things.

Barca Reveal Enormous Debts

Barcelona's annual financial report has revealed debts of well over 1bn euros, with nearly 200m euros made up of payments owed to other clubs for players. The report has revealed that they are still paying for players such as Arturo Vidal, Arthur and Malcom, who have left the club already. The club's financial problems are such that bankruptcy is a very real possibility, unless more creditors agree to postpone payments owed by the Catalans.
