FA to investigate Holloway claims (Part 1 & 2)

FA to investigate Holloway claims (Part 1)

The Football Association will contact QPR boss Ian Holloway over his claim that he was offered a cash bribe to push through a player's transfer.
He will be asked to give evidence to an FA compliance unit investigation into a proposed deal for Argentine defender Gino Padula from Jerez.
Holloway said: "I thought I was getting a certain player on a free transfer.
"His agent then came back to me and said 'my fee is this amount and you will get that from it'."
Holloway's revelation comes after Luton boss Mike Newell claimed "bungs" for transfers were still rife in the game.
An FA spokesman said: "We will be contacting Ian Holloway to request a meeting.
"We take these matters very seriously and our compliance department will thoroughly investigate any evidence of wrongdoing or breaches of regulation.
"We would expect anyone who has evidence of any wrongdoing to come forward."
Newell optimistic following talks


As the transfer was an international one, it will almost certainly fall under Fifa's jurisdiction.
The spokesman added: "If necessary we will pass on any information to Fifa and other national associations."
Former Rangers chairman Nick Blackburn has backed up Holloway's claims.
Holloway told the QPR board about the offer to smooth the deal.
He said: "I went back to the board and said 'You must be joking'. I earn my money through my contract, not any other way. I've nothing to hide.
"There are agents out there with whacking great wheelbarrows who say, 'Fill that up with money'."
Blackburn, who was in control of QPR at the time, said such incidents were not isolated.
He said: "Ian called me and said the agent of the player we were interested in wanted £50,000 - and "Olly" was going to get £30,000 of it.
"We didn't think the player in question was worth £50,000, never mind that amount for his agent. In the end we settled on a £4,000 handling fee.
"I heard stories all the time when I was chairman. I'm very disappointed the game has to endure this." Blackburn added: "Ian told me because he is an honest guy, but how many more of these deals happen behind the scenes when people are not so honest? It is an appalling state of affairs and it leaves me sickened."
