Equal pay, broken bones and whisky bets
Mani Djazmi and former Scotland and Chelsea winger Pat Nevin discuss this week's biggest football stories. Clare Walsh, Football Federation Australia's head of game development, talks about the countries' new pay deal that will see players of the women's national team get the same salary as their male counterparts. We mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall by remembering an extraordinary bet between an East German player and a West German cabinet minister. Following Andre Gomes' horrific injury David Busst, who was forced to retire after his double broken leg, joins us to talk about how to deal with the aftermath. And podcast listeners can hear from Granada's Nigeria striker, Ramon Azeez, who says he wants their opponents to fear the club that are just two points behind the leaders in their first season back in the top division.
