Palios faces England strike threat

Mark Palios, chief executive of the Football Association, and former partner at Big Four firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, is facing a player revolt just five months into his new job.

After taking the controversial decision to drop Britains most expensive footballer, Rio Ferdinand, for failing to appear for a routine drug test, Palios has put himself under intense scrutiny just days before England’s crunch European qualification match with Turkey.

National press reports this morning claim that eight senior members of the squad, including captain David Beckham and Michael Owen, have voted to strike, putting at risk the team’s chances of reaching the finals of the European championships.

The FA later denied the reports, claiming that ‘very amicable discussions’ were held with a number of senior players and strike action was never on the agenda.
