PFA call in the lawyers to examine complaints about Maheta Molango

PFA call in the lawyers to examine complaints they have received following their recommendation of Maheta Molango to replace Gordon Taylor as CEO

  • The PFA have asked an independent lawyer to examine complaints they received
  • Complaints came from their recommendation of Maheta Molango as their CEO
  • Molango, a Swiss lawyer, was named as Gordon Taylor’s replacement last week
  • However, there have been complaints about the recruitment process by the PFA 

The PFA have asked an independent lawyer, Peter Crowther of Winston & Strawn, to examine complaints they have received following their recommendation of Maheta Molango as the union’s new chief executive.

In another twist in the extraordinary three-year saga of the PFA’s attempts to replace Gordon Taylor, Sportsmail revealed last weekend that two of the four other shortlisted candidates for the chief executive job have submitted complaints about the recruitment process.

The PFA are pressing ahead with their overhaul, but are also looking into complaints that are understood to largely focus on the central role played by John Mousinho.

The Oxford United defender was involved in selecting the advisory panel who ran the recruitment process before sitting in on the final round of interviews, as well as offering his own services as a candidate if Molango proved to be unavailable.

The 34-year-old is also a member of the PFA players’ board, who last week unanimously approved Molango’s appointment.

Crowther has been tasked with probing the PFA’s recruitment process after being recommended by Sports Resolutions, the arbitration service responsible for the independent review into the union’s governance which was completed last year.

The review has yet to be made public and Molango will face calls to do so as possible, assuming his appointment is ratified.

The PFA on Tuesday announced the candidates seeking to join a new players’ board, which will be made up of two players from each of the four top divisions and the Women’s Super League, and three who have retired. 

The players seeking to be elected in the ballot of all members include Tyrone Mings, Wes Morgan, Tom Heaton and Troy Deaney.
