Apr 6, 2017-

English Football Association chairman Greg Clarke has lambasted David Moyes after the Sunderland manager told a female reporter that she “might get a slap even though you’re a woman” for questions asked in an interview last month. Moyes, who is facing a possible FA sanction, has come under fierce criticism after the conversation, filmed on a mobile phone following Sunderland’s 0-0 home draw against Burnley on March 18, was published by a tabloid newspaper. “It was regrettable, it was distasteful, and I think it showed a complete lack of respect. And we in the game stand for respect,” Clarke told reporters at the UEFA Congress in Helsinki.
