Rooney joins debate as sex abuse scandal engulfs English football

Michael Bennett, head of player welfare at the PFA, said the organisation has set up a "triage service" to help players who had been abused by Bennell.

Bennell was jailed for four years for raping a British boy at a football camp in Florida in 1994 before receiving a nine-year sentence in 1998 for 23 offences against six boys.

Bennell was sentenced to nine years in prison in 1998 after admitting sexual offences against six boys.

Having seen his interview, Mr Unsworth then told his partner he had been abused.

Earlier, Dunford told BBC television: "I believe there was a conspiracy and paedophile ring". I encourage people to pick up the phone and ring and say "I was a victim". "Speaking out is liberating".

White said the abuse took place when he was playing for a junior team in Manchester.

The former England worldwide released a statement saying, "Given recent press stories I wish to confirm that I was sexually abused by my former football coach Barry Bennell in the late 1970s and early 1980s - this abuse took place while I was attached to the Whitehill FC Junior team based in Manchester".

He said: "I knew it wasn't right, and it's such a long time ago to remember everything and obviously I'm struggling now to remember everything that happened".

These supposedly viral videos have been given more exposure on the front page of YouTube and in areas where videos are suggested. So it's not too much of a leap to suggest that he's saying he's going to start a new YouTube Channel after this one.

"One day, travelling in the vehicle, he started to touch me", he revealed.

"Circumstances took me away from the abuse before it escalated. Later I woke up again, and the coach was touching one of the other boys".

Former Manchester City forward David White has alleged he was sexually abused by youth coach Barry Bennell.

Crewe have responded to requests for comment with the following statement: "There is no press conference or any comment other than the statements made by club chairman John Bowler and Dario Gradi".

"As a result the club is now undertaking a thorough investigation of any past links he might have had with the organisation".

Both Crewe Alexandra and Manchester City have launched internal investigations surrounding the reports of sexual abuse.

"Because of Woodward's bravery, many other ex-players and apprentices are now contacting us - it is double figures now", Taylor told Britain's Press Association.

"That is appalling", said Clarke, when that was put to him on Thursday.

Mistry says Ratan Tata's decision-making is 'capricious'
Tata Sons, in its statement on Monday, had accused Mistry of converting the group into his "personal fiefdom". Independent director meetings were conducted in March 2015 and March 2016".

"We've got 8,500 safeguarding officers out there in the community and I wrote to 30,000 clubs today to raise their awareness", said Clarke.

"We welcome the Irish FA's commitment to helping those in the game get the help and supportthey need".

"My name was always mentioned by other people who thought I'd been abused, so police asked me three times, but I always denied it", he said.

In a 2012 interview with the Sunday Times Bennell admitted that former Everton, Newcastle, Leeds and Wales midfield star Gary Speed - who was the manager of Wales when he died in November 2011 - was one of the youngsters who stayed at his house.

White also claims he was abused by Bennell, while his one-time City team-mate and fellow England worldwide Paul Stewart told the Daily Mirror he was sexually assaulted between the ages of 11 and 15 by an unnamed coach, who told him of Bennell's crimes in an attempt to legitimise the abuse.

Wayne Rooney has urged victims of sex abuse within football to come forward and "stop suffering in silence".

Praising the bravery of those who have come forward, he said: "It's bad that some of my colleagues have suffered this way while playing the sport that I and they love".
