Injury Round-Up

 

 

Managerial Changes

With League Two side Swindon Town stuck in the middle of a battle with the FA over its owner Lee Power, and the funding of the side, new manager John McGreal, his assistant Rene Gilmartin and chief executive Steve Anderson have all quit the club. McGreal had been there a month and never even took charge of a match and Gilmartin joined him about a week after he took charge. A statement from McGreal and Gilmartin read: "This is a decision we both have made, as we feel we are not able to carry out our duties as manager and assistant manager. Our intention from day one was to build a football team to compete in this league, but unfortunately due to the current circumstances the club is facing, we do not feel we are able to do that. We have signings ready to be announced. However, the legal proceedings involving the ownership has not allowed us to do so, making our positions at the club untenable." Swindon are facing troubles after Gareth Barry's agent Michael Standing claimed to have bought 50% of the club's holding company, despite agents being banned from owning clubs under FA regulations. There have also been accusations levelled at Gareth Barry for being involved in Standings buy-in.

David Gray has joined the coaching staff at Hibernian following the 33 year old announcing his retirement from playing.

Scott Parker has left Fulham and taken charge at Bournemouth instead. Caretaker boss Jonathan Woodgate has left the Cherries as Parker brings in the staff from Fulham.

Frank de Boer has quit as manager of the Netherlands national team after their defeat to Czech Republic in the last-16 of Euro 2020.

 


Disciplinary Charges

 

 

Police Investigate Rafa Banner

Merseyside police are investigating after a threatening banner was left near Rafael Benitez's home. The Spaniard is set to take over Everton, having been Liverpool manager and referring to Everton once as a small club, which has left many Everton fans against the appointment. There has already been an abusive banner placed on the walls of Goodison Park, but now they have turned to what can only be considered a threat by putting a banner up in Caldy which read: "We know where you live. Don't sign." A police statement said: "We can confirm police are investigating reports of a threatening banner at a location in Caldy today, Monday 28 June. At around 7am, it was reported that a banner made from bed sheets had been placed over a wall and bushes on a residential driveway, with wording which is thought to target football manager Rafa Benitez."
