You Guys Remember That Coach Who Made Ebola Jokes About Nigerian Player? He’s Been Sacked By English FA NAIJA NEWS by Seun 21 mins ago

34 year old Mark Sampson, who is the coach of England National Women team has been Sacked by the English FA over inappropriate relations with Bristol Academy female players.

 

 

This is coming after Eniola Aluko’s, the elder sister of Nigerian striker, Sone Aluko accused him of subjecting her alongside her Nigerian family to a racist ebola joke.

The FA in its statement has however said that Aluko’s allegations has nothing to do with the coach’s sack. The FA says it was recently given full details of the report into Sampson’s conduct, despite the allegations first being made in March 2014 which he denied.

“The Football Association can confirm that Mark Sampson’s contract as England Women’s head coach has been terminated with immediate effect,” said a statement by the FA.

“Prior to taking charge of the national team in December 2013, Sampson was manager of Bristol Academy.

“In 2014, safeguarding allegations were made against him about his time with Bristol Academy. The safeguarding assessment was that he did not pose a risk working in the game.

However, the full report of that investigation was only brought to the attention of the current FA leadership last week and it is our judgement that it revealed clear evidence of inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour by a coach.

“It is on this basis that we have acted quickly to agree a termination of Sampson’s contract.

“In respect of investigations into specific allegations made by Eniola Aluko in 2016, The FA stands by the findings of the independent barrister Katharine Newton’s investigation.

“Sampson has denied all of the accusations put to him and no evidence of wrong-doing was found.

We will continue to support the independent investigation as it reviews the recent evidence presented to it and publish any new findings and recommendations.”
