Change woman for man and that was basically the headline every time Wales had a game coming up when Giggs was concerned.

Greg Clarke resigns as Football Association chairman after remark about black players

Warning: This report contains offensive language.

Football Association chairman Greg Clarke has resigned over "unacceptable" language to describe black players.Clarke said he was "deeply saddened" for the offence he had caused by using the term "coloured footballers".The comments came as he was talking about the racist abuse of players by trolls on social media to the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) select committee via video link.Clarke said his words were a "disservice to our game".

"We can confirm that Greg Clarke has stepped down from his role as our chairman," said an FA statement.

"Peter McCormick will step into the role as interim FA chairman with immediate effect and the FA Board will begin the process of identifying and appointing a new chair in due course."

Following his resignation, Clarke said: "My unacceptable words in front of Parliament were a disservice to our game and to those who watch, play, referee and administer it. This has crystallised my resolve to move on.

"I am deeply saddened that I have offended those diverse communities in football that I and others worked so hard to include."

During the parliamentary hearing, Clarke apologised after being prompted to say sorry by MP Kevin Brennan.

Brennan said Clarke's language in reference to black players was the kind that did not encourage inclusion, while fellow committee member Alex Davies-Jones called it "abhorrent".

Clarke had earlier spoken of the need to attract people into the sport from a range of communities.

"People can see if you're black and if they don't like black people because they are filthy racists, they can abuse you anonymously online," he said.

"If you go to the IT department of the FA, there's a lot more South Asians than there are Afro-Caribbeans. They have different career interests," said Clarke.

He prompted further criticism when referring to gay players making a "life choice" and a coach telling him young female players did not like having the ball hit hard at them."

The equality charity Kick It Out said his remark about black players should be "consigned to the dustbin of history" and criticised the comments by Clarke concerning people from South Asia, gay players and female footballers.

Clarke had been called to give evidence to the DCMS committee about the Premier League's potential bailout of English Football League clubs and the structural reforms proposed as part of 'Project Big Picture'.

"As a person who loves football and has given decades of service to our game, it is right that I put the interests of football first," added Clarke in the statement confirming his departure.

"2020 has been a challenging year and I have been actively considering standing down for some time to make way for a new chair now our CEO transition is complete and excellent executive leadership under Mark Bullingham is established."

Speaking before the resignation was announced, Sanjay Bhandari, executive chair at Kick It Out, said Clarke's comments to the DCMS were outdated.

"I was particularly concerned by the use of lazy racist stereotypes about South Asians and their supposed career preferences. It reflects similar lazy stereotypes I have heard have been spouted at club academy level," he said.

"Being gay is not a 'life choice' as he claimed too. The casual sexism of saying 'girls' do not like balls hit at them hard is staggering from anyone, let alone the leader of our national game. It is completely unacceptable."

Analysis
BBC sports editor Dan Roan

Three years ago - in front of the same parliamentary committee, Greg Clarke was criticised for referring to institutional racism as "fluff". He apologised after being chastised by MPs and reminded that language matters.

It appears the message did not get through.

Two weeks after the FA launched a new diversity code with the aim of finally tackling racial inequality in the game, the governing body's commitment to diversity has once again been called into question.

Amid under-representation of BAME managers and board members, many critics will see Clarke's comments as evidence of the attitudes and language that has prevented the organisation from overseeing the progress hoped for in recent years, and it is no surprise that he has decided to step down.

Despite having barely been seen since the start of the year, Clarke was already under pressure over his role initiating secret talks over the Project Big Picture plans for a radical overhaul of the English game. Indeed earlier in the committee hearing, he was asked if his authority was "shot", something he strongly denied.

But then came his comments on diversity. Amid an unprecedented financial crisis for the sport and damaging divisions with fans, leagues and government, the FA chairman has now had to go over yet another controversy.

This is another grim day for the game, at the worst possible moment.

More to follow.
Was he just trying to offend everyone?

Was an emotional roller coaster last night. All the usual elements were there. A (amazingly) dominant performance. A last minute fuck up.

Then onto our surprising ability to be mega composed during a PK shoot out.

Great for the country though.

We seem in a good place on both fronts.

But Iím not getting away. Felt like Nostradamus watching the 98th minute Serbian equaliser.

Yeah, itís always good to have a close National ally to support when you watch them go up against the English, as we shall do next summer.

Dunno if you saw this from Ryan Christie, but it summed up the mood.


And this

I kept it for years in my room, untouched, until one day me and my mates didn't have a ball to play with so I got the Spurs ball and we played heads and volleys for hours in the park and more or less kicked all the autographs off it.

yeah that was messed up stuff alright...... surprised he came back from that one and was able to be a pundit afterwards. I suspect if it happened now - lets say someone like Neville or Carragher came out with that shite - then that would be it for them.
