MPs issue football's governors a warning

Published Add your comment

English football's authorities have been given an ultimatum by MPs to make further changes or face possible legislation - with a warning that financial reforms in particular have been "hugely disappointing".

The culture, media and sport select committee said the leagues - especially the Premier League - wielded too much influence over the Football Association. The committee's follow-up report into football governance said it has been "very disappointed" by the football authorities' response to its proposals for reform made in July 2011.

Committee chairman John Whittingdale said: "While some progress has been achieved, much greater reform in football is needed to make the game inclusive, sustainable and driven from the grass-roots, where it should be."
