Power…Aleksander Ceferin (left) and Gianni InfantinoAt the start of this season, few people would have predicted that six months later two of the most talked about footballers in the world would be Emiliano Sala (page 30) and Hakeem Al Araibi (page 34). Sadly, events of the past month have ensured that they have made headlines for all the wrong reasons.Sala’s time in French football was largely undistinguished, bar his recent achievements at Nantes. Sadly, his career will be remembered for a fateful plane journey that has raised all sorts of questions about modern football clubs and the way they conduct their business.The case of Al Araibi has again exposed the complex world of Middle East politics with which football often entangles itself. Events off the pitch at the recent Asian…

Joao FELIX(Benfica)The 19-year-old attacking midfielder has been a revelation in recent weeks. He was the subject of a €60million offer from an unnamed Premier League side in January, a move that prompted Benfica to raise his release clause to €120m.Having made his debut for the club in August, his big opportunity came in January when they parted company with coach Rui Vitoria. His successor, Bruno Lage, had coached Felix in the club’s B side and the youngster, who can play as a winger or striker, quickly became a key part of his 4-4-2 system, alongside Swiss centre-forward Haris Seferovic.A cooly-taken goal against Sporting in the Lisbon derby was watched by Cristiano Ronaldo, prompting inevitable comparisons, but Felix already has better stats than the Juventus star at the same stage, having…

Breaking news… German magazine Der SpiegelWhistle-blowers are playing a dangerous gameIt takes courage to be a whistle-blower. The convention is that the individual is an insider outraged by the corrupt, illicit, illegal and/or immoral behaviour of bosses or colleagues; the righteous putting integrity ahead of job security and friendships.But, sometimes, all may not be quite as it seems…This is the conundrum concerning “John”, now revealed as Rui Pedro Goncalves Pinto, whose “Football Leaks” exploits have brought sleepless nights to football’s high and mighty.Pinto is 30, Portuguese and lives in the Hungarian capital of Budapest, which provides him with a lifestyle he believes his own country trashed long ago. Or, at least, this is where he lives right now, under house arrest with an electronic tag on one ankle.Portugal has launched…

gordon banks (1937-2019)

England’s ever-dwindling band of 1966 World Cup-winners has been reduced to seven with the death, at the age of 81, of Gordon Banks, probably his country’s greatest goalkeeper.The remarkable facet of the Banks legend is that even more than 1966 he is remembered for his astonishing save from Pele in a group game in the finals in Mexico four years later.One of the flood of tributes to Banks, from his agent Terry Banks, summed him up perfectly as “having worn his fame lightly”. Banks revealed in 2015 that he was fighting kidney cancer for a second time, having lost a kidney to the disease 10 years earlier.He had also been a high-profile and active supporter of a campaign for research into dementia.He is survived by his wife, Ursula, whom he…
