He took a loan spell at Cardiff City, in the second-tier Championship, hoping “a Premier League team would notice me and give me a chance.” In 2009, he signed for Manchester City, as cover for Shay Given — “the bionic man: he’d have an arm falling off and he’d still play” — expecting chances in the F.A. and League Cups.
The Football Association of Wales (FAW) has begun disciplinary action against its chief executive Jonathan Ford for saying the next Wales manager could be "foreign", but "definitely not English".

She thought those things alone would get her into almost any top soccer school, until she realized those colleges sometimes flew to away matches and because she had no government ID she wouldn’t be able to get on the planes.

Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright rejected claims that Manchester City over-celebrated Sunday's derby win and played down the post-match row.

No easy games in the Champions League, anyone can beat anyone on their day, etc and so on and so forth: but this is probably the easiest tie of the round to call.

The Supreme Court said on Monday that it would not hear an appeal in a case that could have resolved whether a federal law prohibits employers from discriminating against gay and lesbian workers.

"I am very happy to be like them in winning this award," said Salah, who follows compatriots Mohamed Barakat (2005) and Mohamed Aboutrika (2008) in receiving the trophy.
