UEFA secretary confronts FA over England's rights at Soccerex European Forum

UEFA general secretary, Gianni Infantino, risked antagonising the FA over the Umbro match ball sponsorship deal by revealing at the Soccerex conference in Manchester yesterday that we're the only country yet to agree that UEFA can sell rights to Euro and World Cup qualifiers from 2014.

Infantino said at the conference ‘It always takes a little bit longer in England.’

The FA have negotiated a £100m compensation deal with UEFA over four years for giving up their rights.
