Tony Pulis calls for FA to take action against corruption in English football

West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis calls on the Football Association to take action against corrupt figures in the English game.
By , Staff Reporter | 3y

West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis has called for the Football Association to take action against corrupt figures in the English game.

A number of figures in England's top flight and Championship have been targeted by undercover reporters from The Telegraph posing as representatives of a Far East investment firm looking to get around the ban on third-party ownership of players.

Queens Park Rangers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino, former Barnsley assistant coach Tommy Wright and Southampton number two Eric Black are among those to be implicated by the newspaper.

Sam Allardyce was also secretly filmed by the undercover reporters, and he was forced to step down as England manager as a result.

When asked about Allardyce and the allegations, Pulis told reporters: "Just on the football front, me personally I'm very disappointed. He's worked all his life for 30 years and his ambition was to become eventually England manager. He got the job and he's lost it.

"It's happened and the sad thing for me is on the football front Sam has worked all his life to get the job and it's gone. All the rest of it that surrounds it, that we've been reading about and seeing, it's now time for the FA and governing bodies to take that information, analyse and assess it and then act on what they think is right and wrong.

"I think everything should go to the governing bodies and they should assess and take appropriate action. I'm a football person and let's get back to talking football and leave all that stuff to the governing bodies."

Meanwhile, QPR have claimed that they are "unable to proceed" with their internal investigation into Hasselbaink because The Telegraph has not yet disclosed all the relevant information. body check tags ::
