FIFA on third-party ownership: System more difficult to be abused

FA Chairman Greg Clarke says Sam Allardyce left his position as England manager based on things he said, not performance.
West Bromwich manager Tony Pulis addresses Sam Allardyce's resignation and how the FA should proceed.

FIFA believes The Daily Telegraph's undercover investigation into corruption in football has shown that its efforts to tighten up the transfer system have worked.

One of the issues to arise from the Telegraph's reports this week is the fear that some in the game are circumventing rules against the third-party ownership of players, which is where an investor or group of investors will own a share or all of a player's commercial rights.

Serbia have appealed to the CAS as part of their opposition to Kosovo's UEFA membership.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- The Serbian football federation has appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport against Kosovo being accepted as a member of UEFA.

CAS said it will hear the case on Oct. 31. In May, UEFA member federations voted 28-24 in favor of Kosovo's application after Serbia led the opposition to its former province.

The then-president of Serbia's federation, Tomislav Karadzic, said it was a "political vote, not a footballing proposal."

The UEFA decision allowed Kosovo to join FIFA...

Yaya Toure questions FIFA call to disband anti-racism task force

After frustrating fantasy owners in 2014-15, Manchester City's Yaya Toure is paying off handsomely thus far in 2015-16.
Yaya Toure was a consultant to FIFA's anti-racism task force.

Yaya Toure has expressed his disappointment with FIFA's decision to disband its anti-racism task force.

The FIFA Task Force Against Racism and Discrimination was set up in 2013 and wound up on Sunday, with the world governing body saying it had achieved its mission.

Toure, who was a consultant to the task force, referenced the World Cup in 2018 in Russia, where there has been a history of players receiving racist abuse, and said the letter he received from FIFA "does not fill me with confidence."
