Mel Machin, the Bournemouth manager, and his Notts County counterpart, Gary Brazil, have been reported to the FA for alleged misconduct following two disputes with referee Jeff Winter during Tuesday's FA Cup tie at Dean Court. Winter stopped the game to speak to Machin following comments he made in the first half - and was approached by an angry Brazil after the game which Bournemouth won 4-2 following a last-minute penalty.

Dimitar Dimitrov, the Bulgaria coach, has had his contract extended until 2002 despite his team's failure to qualify for Euro 2000.

Olympiakos, the Greek champions, have appointed Alberto Bigon as their new coach. Bigon, who won the Italian title with Roma in 1990, replaces Dusan Bajevic.
