SPL, SFL Close To Reconstruction Deal That Would Shake Up Scottish Football

SPEAKING A NEW LANGUAGE: In Glasgow, Gordon Waddell reported the latest candidates for the Scottish FA's UEFA Pro License gathered at Hampden Sunday to "kick off the two-year course they now need to boss at the elite level of European football." For the first time since the course began in '99, however, candidates "must learn a second language as part of their studies." SFA Head of Football Development Jim Fleeting said, "At first they resisted, saying fewer foreigners were coming here so why the need. But then I asked 'What? Do none of you ever want to go and work abroad?' We’re not asking them to be fluent but it will be useful if they have enough to be courteous and get through a conversation" (DAILY RECORD, 1/6).
