PFA allege bullying over McGuire dismissal

The Professional Footballers' Association say former deputy chief executive Mick McGuire was dismissed following allegations of bullying.

McGuire left the players' union last week amid reports of a breakdown in relations with chief executive Gordon Taylor.

However, the organisation have now moved to clarify the circumstances surrounding his departure.

In a statement, Taylor said: "On Wednesday 11th March after serious allegations of bullying, which I found to be substantiated, I regrettably had no alternative but to summarily dismiss Mick McGuire for gross professional misconduct.

"As a trade union the PFA, and I as its chief executive officer, cannot condone bullying, nor allow it to continue."
