Lingerie Football League Neville Phil

Said & Done: Martin Glenn, Phil Neville and the Lingerie Football League

by David Hills 4 days ago

The week in football – also featuring: Carlo Tavecchio, Chuck Blazer and delays at the contract stage

Move of the week

Martin Glenn – choosing @fizzer18 to end the era of “ill-judged attempts at humour”. Glenn’s vision last March: a promise to try harder after the FA “let down” women’s football in the past. “We’re now addressing these failings.”

Last week’s key damage limitation lines:

a) Phil Neville clarifying that his sexist “historic social media comments” from 2011 “were not, and are not, a true reflection of either my character or my beliefs”. (Julie Neville’sline on her husband’s character and beliefs in 2015: “In 18 years he’s never made me a drink. He’s also never used a hoover, mop, dishwasher, or the washing machine.”)

b) Neville’s pledge to “help continue the growth of women’s football … I’m passionate about working with the women’s game” – two years after the hotel he co-owns hosted the launch of the Lingerie Football League – women playing in crop tops and hot pants. A petition accused the Class of 92 of exposing “women and girls to sexism and prejudice” and “to being viewed as sex objects, not sportswomen … It sets women’s football back at least 25 years.”

And c) The FA’s ethics team ruling that Neville’s tweets – including “Just battered the wife, feel better now!” – would not “meet the threshold for a charge” – seven months after they fined David Moyes £30,000 for telling a reporter: “You might get a slap, even though you’re a woman.” FA chairman Greg Clarke’s view on the Moyes case last year: “It’s doubly bad to use such a term against a woman because there’s a lot of violence against women in society. It was regrettable, distasteful, it showed a complete lack of respect. And we in the game stand for respect.”

Elsewhere: eyeing a comeback

Former Italy FA head Carlo Tavecchio, 74 – considering a run at the vacant Serie A presidency. Tavecchio, who resigned last year blaming “a press witch hunt” over his multiple financial crime convictions and public censures for racism, sexism and homophobia, told media: “If they call, I am ready.”

Also new from the football family:

a) A leaked Fifa auditshowing successful expenses claims from 2006 to 2015, including the late Chuck Blazer claiming $13,000 for a flight he didn’t take, and the son of Costa Rica’s late Isaac Sasso Sasso claiming $15,000 for an event his father didn’t go to.

And b) Brazil’s FA launching its new eight-module 2018 “football administration course”, with places costing £2,150. The FA, whose last three presidents all deny racketeering, says modules will include “good governance”, “leadership styles” and the role of “ethics in football”.

Other news: most responsible

Newcastle – removing casino sponsor Fun88’s logo from their youth team’s shirts as part of their commitment to avoid promoting financial irresponsibility to children. (Among the club’s previous best promotions: 2013’s “computer skills course for 14-year-olds”, in association with payday lender Wonga.)

Manager news

Makes moves last week:

a) Italy, 16 Dec: Serie B Pro Vercelli’s president Massimo Secondo, sacking coach Gianluca Grassadonia because “he had it in his head we could play tiki-taka. We can’t, obviously – and only I had the maturity to see it.” 22 Jan: Rehires him. “My respect for Grassadonia never died.”

b) Germany, 15 Jan: Hamburg CEO Heribert Bruchhagen, playing down public pressure on coach Markus Gisdol: “We’re well aware of our situation: it’s precarious again. But one thing is clear: our trust in Mr Gisdol is unlimited.” 21 Jan: Sacks him.

c) Brazil: Gama director of football Vilson de Sá, rejecting talk that sacking coach Carlos Alberto Dias after one game was rash. “He’s a good man and he has a good future. But that future is somewhere else.”
