Canadian Friendly Cancelled

The Canadian national team have cancelled a proposed friendly with Iran, that was set to take place in Vancouver in June, after criticism from Canadian MPs. Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had spoken out against it, calling it "a bad idea" and hinting that Iranians might not be allowed into the country. The game faced criticism due to Iran shooting down Flight PS752 in 2020, which had 85 Canadians and permanent Canadian residents on it, in Tehran. The families of those who died on the flight were intending to protest outside the stadium as feelings against the match ran high. Canada's high commissioner to the UK, Ralph Goodale, had called Canada Soccer's behaviour "repugnant".


Ligue 1 Bites Back

The president of Ligue 1, Vincent Labrune, has hit back at La Liga chief Javier Tebas over his "unacceptable" comments about Kylian Mbappe's new Paris Saint-Germain deal. La Liga and Tebas had referred to the PSG contract as "scandalous", among other things. Labrune has now hit back, saying: "Over the past 10 years, La Liga has spent 32% more on players than Ligue 1. Your attacks on Ligue 1 and one of our clubs Paris St-Germain, and one of our players Kylian Mbappe, are based around your own interpretation of financial unsustainability and competitive imbalance, which you repeatedly attribute to Ligue 1 and one of our clubs. The fact that you publicly and repeatedly take this position against Ligue 1 on this topic and denigrate our league and our clubs is both unacceptable and manifestly false. Two of your clubs, Real Madrid and Barcelona, have broken a multitude of records in the past decade. In terms of transfer fees, these two clubs have broken the world record six times. In terms of player salaries, Real Madrid currently has two of the highest-paid players in world football sat on their bench. In terms of debt, Barcelona is reported to have a debt level of €1.5bn, and this is despite the European Court of Justice finding that Real Madrid and Barcelona benefitted from illegal state aid."
