More corruption talk! Sam Allardyce had wanted the England job for years before a cheeky undercover sting operation and a pint of wine ruined the whole thing.
And now there is more corruption controversy in the world of football!
Anthony Taylor has been appointed as referee for Manchester United’s away trip to Liverpool on Monday evening.
‘So what?’ you might say, but apparently young Anthony lives just six miles from Old Trafford!
Former Prem ref Keith Hackett isn’t happy about it anyway, he said: “”No-one is questioning his integrity, but what if something goes wrong? It would be intolerable.”
Taylor is understood to have no ties in Manchester and supports National League North side Altrincham – so this could all be a bit of fuss over nothing.
It’s understood that where a referee lives is not a factor when appointments are made, but maybe it should be?
All we know is that if he lives six miles away from Old Trafford there’s no way he’s a United fan, it’s not like he lives in Kent!
