Manchester United: 'Scrutiny from the hierarchy has never been greater'

26 Feb 2024  |  bbc.com
Manchester United faced scrutiny after an underwhelming performance against Fulham, despite pre-match optimism from manager Erik ten Hag and new co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe. The defeat brought further questions about Ten Hag's future at the club, especially as the team has suffered the most defeats at this stage of a season since the 1989-90 campaign. The presence of Sir David Brailsford in the stands and the absence of Ratcliffe at the game highlighted the increased scrutiny from the club's hierarchy.

Joel Mannix and his assistant referees before a match

01 Apr 2023  |  BBC
Joel Mannix, a non-league referee, discusses the rarity of black officials in football and the puzzled reactions he often encounters. Despite a significant number of referees from BAME backgrounds, Mannix feels there is a lack of high-profile black referees to inspire others. He believes football is significantly hindered by racism and a lack of diversity, and calls for stricter punishments for racist behavior. Mannix, who also runs a security company and has worked with celebrities, suggests that football needs to increase diversity among coaches, managers, and the media. Recent incidents of racism in football and responses from clubs and organizations like Kick It Out are mentioned. The FA's 'In Pursuit of Progress' plan aims to reflect modern society better, but Mannix feels more support for ethnic minority referees is necessary. The FA states it is working to diversify the refereeing community and encourages people from all backgrounds to become referees.

Hayes, who has been successful with Chelsea since 2012, winning the Women's Super League and FA Cup, is looking to claim the League Cup for the first time, a trophy that has been historically dominated by Arsenal and Manchester City. She highlighted the improved mentality and hunger of her team compared to the previous year.
