Greek Super League Suspension, Veteran Football and Remolding Mali
What can be done to fix Greek football? With the league suspended after the PAOK president Ivan Savvidis invaded the pitch to protest against a late goal being disallowed for his side, we speak to Herbert Hübel, the man leading the Fifa monitoring committee that oversees football in Greece. Freddie Kanoute, the former West Ham and Tottenham striker calls for football in his native Mali to be "reshaped" in a bid to rejuvenate the sport in the country. Former Scottish Professional footballer David Weatherston tells Mani Djazmi how anxiety stopped him fulfilling his potential and ended his career. 75-year-old England international John Shannon Jnr and his most committed supporter, 101-year-old John Senior, explain why veteran football is flourishing.
