Injury Round Up

Shrewsbury Town forward Ryan Bowman is hoping to be able to return to training as normal for pre-season after he had heart surgery last week. He had experienced palpitations during a match against Ipswich Town in October but was back in the team a week later. He has now had an operation called an ablation, he told the club's official website, which should help him maintain a normal heart rhythm.

Managerial Changes

Turkish Super Lig side Fatih Karagumruk have appointed Andrea Pirlo as their new boss. The 43-year-old has been out of work since May 2021 after being sacked by Juventus, after they missed out on the Serie A title under him for the first time since 2012.

Michael Duff has left Cheltenham Town to become manager of their League One rivals Barnsley. Cheltenham had given Duff permission to speak to the recently relegated Yorkshire club, despite Duff leading the club to its highest ever league finish last season, after winning promotion to League One the season before. Duff will be the Tykes 6th manager in 3 years.

Al Ahly have begun the search for a new head coach after Pitso Mosimane left the job just 3 months after signing a new 2-year deal. Mosimane has won 2 African Champions League titles, 2 third-place finishes at the Club World Cup and a CAF Super Cup after taking charge in 2020.

Former Arsenal defender Steve Bould has become head coach at SK Lommel in the Belgium second division. It is his first stint as a head coach, he has previous experience as an assistant, including a spell under Arsene Wenger at Arsenal. Lommel are part of the City Group of teams and finished 6th in an 8 team league last season, despite having access to players from the rest of the City Group.


Disciplinary Charges

Experienced Ivory Coast goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo has received an 18-month ban from FIFA for a doping violation. The 33-year-old tested positive for trimetazidine, a heart medication which is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency due to its use as a stimulant. His ban was reduced from the standard 4 year ban after Gbohouo's full cooperation with FIFA investigators and as provided evidence that he had been prescribed medicine containing trimetazidine by an opthalmologist to improve his retinal blood flow. The player stated that he stopped taking the medicine halfway through the 3-month course of treatment after failing to notice any improvement in his eyesight. It was accepted by FIFA that he had unintentionally doped and the 65-cap international will be available to play once again on 24th June 2023 after his ban was backdated to 23rd December 2021 when he was first provisionally suspended.

Despite rumours to the contrary on social media Manchester United have confirmed that Mason Greenwood is still suspended and on bail while under police investigation. Nonsense stories claiming that the FA had announced Greenwood had been cleared were just that, nonsense.


EFL Steps In At Rams

The English Football League has decided to become more involved in the sale of Derby County in an effort to try and secure their future in the league. Administrators for the Rams, Quantuma, had appointed Chris Kirchner as preferred bidder but he has since missed a number of payment deadlines and failed to complete the takeover. The EFL are now trying to ensure the sale process can be expedited with the fixtures for the new season due to be released in just over a week. Kirchner has claimed that he is still intent on completing the purchase. Kirchner has now withdrawn his bid claiming that he was having difficulty transferring funds to the UK. Or maybe Mr Mitty just ran out of excuses to give himself more time to magic up the money out of thin air?


IFAB Make Laws Of The Game Change

IFAB has agreed to make a change to the laws of the game by making 5 substitutions enshrined in the laws of the game. It will now be permanently available as an option to all leagues to allow teams to make up to 5 substitutions within a game at up to 4 different intervals: half-time and then in three separate occasions within the match itself. The game's law body also decided to extend the trial of permanent concussion subs, despite calls for temporary concussion substitutes to be allowed. There will also be tests for a reversion to allowing kick-ins to be brought back to the game, which was removed by the Football Association in 1863. Arsene Wenger, who suggested the trial, believes throw-ins are, along with free-kicks, the "big time-waster" and a change to kick-ins with a time limit in which to take them will make the game quicker and more spectacular.
