Life has gone 'football mad' for boss Bullard

'Premiership unbalanced by salary cap rise'

An increased salary cap risks creating an unbalanced Premiership competition that alienates the grass roots, says Leicester chief executive Simon Cohen.

The base level of the salary cap for this season is £6.5m but this will rise to £7m from 2017-18 to 2019-20. 

Cohen says shareholder-owned Tigers may struggle to spend the full cap, while others can rely on "sugar daddies". 

He told BBC Radio Leicester: "I know the club's chairman voted for [the cap] but personally I think the balance is wrong."

Yaya Toure's agent Dimitri Seluk has responded after Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola demanded an apology over comments made earlier in the year.

Seluk told Sky Sports: "Guardiola wins a few games and thinks he is king. I live in Europe so I can say whatever I like and Guardiola can't stop me.

"I will apologise to Guardiola if he will apologise to [former City manager] Manuel Pellegrini for what he did to him."

Guardiola says Toure must apologise as well, or the midfielder will not be selected to play.

Here is the full story on this.

Northern Ireland face tough end

Switzerland v Northern Ireland (18:00 BST)

It's fair to say that Northern Ireland's women have not followed in the success of their male counterparts during their European qualifying campaign. 

They've lost all but two games (winning twice over Georgia), and tonight travel table-toppers Switzerland - who themselves are yet to drop points in qualification. 

You can keep up to date with the ongoings via the BBC Sport website.

Mainz's Rodriguez suspended and fined


Jose Rodriguez's Bundesliga debut on Sunday ended with a red card in the 90th minute. It's gone from bad to worse now as the Mainz midfielder has been suspended for five games.

Rodriguez was sent off for a tackle on Augsburg's Dominik Kohr which left his opponent with a "deep wound down to the bone" according to the latter's club general manager Stefan Reuter.

While Rodriguez apologised for the tackle, the 21-year-old has been suspended and fined 10,000 euros (£8,625) by the German football association.

On a more positive note, Mainz wished Kohr a speedy recovery via a Facebook post.

Wales' women cannot qualify for the 2017 tournament, however, manager Jayne Ludlow has said that it's the perfect chance to start focusing on the 2019 World Cup. 

Their opponents tonight, Austria, have already qualified for the European Championships next year but will look to finish on a strong note. 

You can watch the match live on the BBC Sport website.

Manchester City's Vincent Kompany could be in line for a return to action for the first time since May. The club captain suffered a groin injury against Real Madrid on 4 May and was an unused substitute during City's 4-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday as he edged closer to a return. 

"It was so frustrating for him, for the club, the last two years, his injuries. Now we think we know the reason why it happened and it's much, much better," manager Pep Guardiola said at his news conference earlier today.

"He has trained a lot and he will be ready and be part of the group and compete with other central defenders to win his position. But we have a lot of games and we need him."
