The UK government has told the Football Association
that it does not like its performance. Apparently it is not doing enough to advance the women’s game and for youth development, amongst other things. The FA is a private organisation. Politicians might not understand how such powerful bodies, that achieve so much in society, and which are not motivated by profit, become so large and important without them being created and managed by politicians and government bureuacrats. But, the fact is that they do. The government has no right to comment in any way whatsoever on the performance of the FA.
