ENGLAND’S women’s football manager Mark Sampson has been dramatically cleared of being a football coach after strong allegations against him were made through the formal complaints department earlier this week that he was indeed a coach. The F.A. have categorically denied the claim.
Sampson was also accused of making a series of remarks from the touchline during coaching sessions ahead of England’s Euro encounter in the Netherlands last month.
Witnesses claimed they overheard comments allegedly made by Sampson to a member of his squad that were deemed ‘inappropriate’, before lodging the complaint.
One of the witnesses who wished not to be named told our reporters: “He (Sampson) was trying to explain to his group of players how the offside rule works.
“Now, everybody knows women aren’t capable of understanding the offside rule so we were naturally shocked. If that is not sexist I don’t know what is.”
Complaints made to the F.A. about Mark Sampson also included players being made to kick the ball in a straight line and in one incident a young full-back was being coached on how to swing her leg and actually make contact with the ball without falling over on her arse and crying.
“It was just banter and it was taken the wrong way. But hey, you know what women are like, right?” – Mark Sampson
It’s not the first complaint made about women’s football.
In the 2015 World Cup held in Canada, thousands of complaints were allegedly made by men between the ages of 18-99 that not one single fan was heard shouting from the terraces, “Get yer tits out for the lads!”
