Contract reforms latest

Emma Hayes believes player contract reforms introduced to women’s professional football in England should be replicated worldwide.  

The Chelsea chief was speaking after the FA unveiled enhanced maternity, injury and sickness pay for pro players.

The move, announced today, follows 16 months of talks between the sport’s chiefs and the Professional Footballers’ Association.

Contract changes, to start from next season, include players in the sport’s top two tiers being entitled to 14 weeks’ maternity leave pay on full weekly salaries.

Hayes, whose side are facing Man United in the Conti Cup semi-finals, told Sky Sports: “This has been massively needed and it’s another step in the right direction.

“We’ve got so much catching up to do in our game whether that be about the opportunity whether that be about provision behind the scenes.

“This is needed across the global game. Not just in England.

“I think Fifpro are trying to put in place basic standards, basic minimums across the globe to protect the rights of women in football.”
