Lord Triesman, former chairman of the Football Association, will give evidence to the Parliamentary culture, media and sport select committee inquiry into football governance next week.

Triesman has yet to speak publicly about his time at the FA since resigning last year.

But the Labour peer is believed to have been frustrated with the workings of the governing body, while he has also promised to discuss England's failed bid to host the 2018 World Cup finals. Sports minister Hugh Robertson recently called football "the worst governed sport in this country."
