Man United Boss Casey Stoney Hits Out At Equal Pay Between Men And Women In Football

Man United Boss Casey Stoney Hits Out At Equal Pay Between Men And Women In Football

Manchester United women's manager Casey Stoney believes the women's game must do more to bring in revenue before they can justify equal pay with men.

And Brazil's football association (CBF) also revealed that equal pay has been put into force for men and women representing their country.

Stoney praised the move as a "positive" step forward, but she argued that the women's game needs to improve in three areas to allow serious talks over equal pay.

"It's a positive move," the United boss said.

"I'm a realist in terms of equality. I think you get paid the same when you bring in the same revenue.

"Women players want the same opportunities, we want the same resources and it's a great move from the FA.

"We need to invest more money in our marketing. Get more people in the ground, making sure the game is more visible.

"We need to get more commercial revenue back in before we start talking about paying players more towards the equivalent of the men."

Atletico Madrid star Toni Duggan has previously called for women to be paid better in the sport, but not the same as their male counterparts.

Meanwhile, England skipper Steph Houghton believes that women shouldn't be paid the same until they start selling out more stadiums.
