Rodgers charged by FA

first_img In his post-match comments following the Boxing Day defeat at Manchester City, the Northern Irishman appeared to question whether it was correct to have an official from Greater Manchester in charge of the game. As a result he has been landed with an FA charge to which he has until 6pm on Wednesday to respond. “Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been charged by The FA over post-match media comments he made following his side’s game against Manchester City on 26 December 2013,” the FA said in a statement. “It is alleged the comments by Rodgers called into question the integrity of the match referee, and/or implied that the match referee was motivated by bias; and/or brought the game into disrepute; and/or amounted to a failure to act in the best interests of the game.” After the City defeat, Rodgers was particularly angry at the decision to disallow a Raheem Sterling goal for offside, despite the player being at least two yards behind the last defender. “I thought they were horrendous in terms of performance,” he said of the officials at the time. “I thought it was throughout the evening. Hopefully we don’t have another Greater Manchester referee again on a Liverpool-Manchester game. “I was surprised we are playing in Manchester and have a referee from Greater Manchester. “I am sure we won’t get (for) Liverpool-Man City someone from the Wirral.” The day after the game Rodgers insisted he was trying to make a valid point and did not intend to slight Mason. Press Association Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been charged by the Football Association for allegedly questioning the integrity of referee Lee Mason. “In terms of geography, I certainly wasn’t questioning the integrity of referees,” he said. “It was more than logical (as a comment) in terms of having a referee from that part of the world refereeing a game in Manchester. “I wouldn’t suspect that Mike Dean, from the Wirral, has refereed many games for Liverpool over the years. “I was only speaking honestly after the game. I think the FA and the Referees’ Association know perfectly well I am someone who engages in supporting the referees.” last_img read more

Manipur Lift Senior Women’s Football Nationals Title

first_imgPasighat: Manipur beat Railways 1-0 to triumph in the final of the 25th Senior Women’s NFC 2019-20 at the CHF Ground on Tuesday.While both the teams went for a safety-first approach since the get-go, defenders had their tasks cut out to keep Manipur skipper Bala Devi and Kamala, who came into the game having scored twenty goals apiece, in check.Daya Devi, who scored seven goals in the last two matches, got the first chance in the second minute but Railways goalkeeper Swarnamayee Samal parried it away.Railways wingers Mamta and Sanju continued to keep the Manipur defenders on their toes and the latter could have found the back of the net inside the first ten minutes but missed the target by a whisker. Daya got another chance in the 28th minute from an acute angle but her left-footer went begging.Following fewer chances in the first 45 minutes, Railways deployed more pair of legs in the attacking third to help Kamala and Sanju in their pursuit of the eluding goal but to no avail.After the hour-mark, Manipur shifted gears and earned back-to-back opportunities only to see them intercepted by India’s national team skipper Ashalata Devi and Manisha Panna.Finally, in the 67th minute, following a melee inside the Railways box, Bala unleashed a right-footer and Samal, whose vision was blocked partially, had clearly no answer to stop that.
