FA Pays £40K To Striker Bullied Out Of England Side

FA Pays £40K To Striker Bullied Out Of England Side

The Daily Mail published an article the other day about England and former Great Britain women's team member Eni Aluko, who, had become embroiled in a row with the Football Association about a culture of bullying and FA staff who, allegedly undermined and belittled players.


The story, in full can be found here.


I am not prepared to go into the who, what, where and why as the article link explains far better than what I could ever do. However, the point of this little story is that, as ever there are always two sides to every story.

Eni Aluko

Statement in response to Daily Mail article.

A post shared by Eniola Aluko (@enialuko) on



The 30-year-old Chelsea Ladies forward has 102 senior England caps under her belt. Or is that 'on her head'?


Life moves on...

Eni posted the following via her official Instagram account on the same day the Mail published their FA story.

'It has come to the end of an unforgettable 2 weeks working with @channel4 on @uefawomenseuros

'Many thanks for the opportunity @whisperfilmsukto share my passion and football opinion with millions of people each game. I have grown so much as a person and football pundit for this experience working with such passionate, committed and talented people @whisperfilmsuk.

'It was an honour to finish the tournament coverage on such an outstanding final today. Thank you all for your wonderful comments of support, encouragement and feedback- it has been so motivating for me.

'An honest nugget for you, I was in two minds about taking this opportunity because I worried what people would think about me commenting on games after non selection for England. Well, moral of the story never turn down an amazing opportunity out of fear of what others may think, you will never regret saying yes.

'Thank you.'
