Wales boss: Remove football money stealers permanently

Wales manager Chris Coleman has said anyone caught taking bungs in football needs to be "permanently" kicked out of the sport.

"Whether you're on £50,000-a-year or £50,000-a-week, you're stealing money," he told reporters in response to questions over the Daily Telegraph's corruption investigation.

The former Fulham and Coventry boss said he had never been offered a bribe but said corruption in the sport means everyone is "tarnished with the same brush".

Allardyce's accountant refuses to comment on scandal

Sam Allardyce's accountant refused to comment on the scandal that caused the former England manager's sacking today when confronted by ITV News.

Shane Maloney was with Big Sam and the manager's agent at two controversial meetings where Allardyce agreed to strike a £400,000 deal with undercover newspaper reporters posing as businessmen from the Far East.

The accountant - who is fellow director of a string of businesses linked to Allardyce - has not been seen since the scandal was broken on Monday by the Daily Telegraph.

But today Maloney refused to answer questions about the affair after being confronted by ITV News during a chance encounter on the Tube.
