Boateng Case Delay

Reports that the FA is about to pronounce judgment on Coventry’s official complaint that Aston Villa made an approach to George Boateng, are premature.

The wires were buzzing that the FA investigators had interviewed Boateng this week, but in fact, although a meeting had been arranged, the two sides never made contact.

The player is now on holiday at his home in Holland and is expected to fly out to Ghana to spend time with his mother. He is not expected back in Coventry until pre-season training starts at the beginning of July.

The FA team will then interview him and a decision will be made on whether Villa were guilty of an approach.

Coventry club secretary Graham Hover said:

"The FA has our side of the story and I think they have also spoken to Aston Villa. We are now waiting for them to speak to George. We expect a decision some time in July."

Meanwhile there is no holiday for goalkeeper Magnus Hedman. He is still in full training in readiness for Sweden’s Euro 2000 qualifying match against England.

In the meantime he will find himself up against his Coventry team mate Paul Hall. Sweden has arranged a friendly match against Jamaica as a build up to the qualifier against Kevin Keegan’s England.

Hall, who played for his country against Brazil in the World Cup Finals in France last summer, will be flat out to put himself in the shop window.

City put him on the transfer-list earlier this week just one season after buying him from Portsmouth. The striker would dearly love to stick a goal or two past his City team mate Hedman to alert other clubs.

Hedman will look forward to the challenge to show he is back to full fitness after playing through the pain barrier with an abdominal injury to help Coventry stave off relegation.
