England women's team coach fired over misconduct in past job

The FA said that a "safeguarding assessment" in 2015 before the World Cup determined that Sampson "did not pose a risk working in the game" but he was still told to undertake a program to "emphasize the professional boundaries appropriate to a coaching role".

With sports minister Tracey Crouch describing the situation as "a mess", Damian Collins, the chairman of the influential Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee, has accused the FA of an "inexcusable" lack of leadership.

Yet less than 24 hours after Sampson oversaw England's 6-0 win against Russian Federation in a World Cup qualifier, he was called to the FA's Wembley headquarters to be informed his contract would be terminated with immediate effect following an historic safeguarding investigation into his conduct while he was manager of Bristol Academy. An investigation by the FA found that Sampson had no case to answer, even though Aluko's teammate Drew Spence supporter her accusations, but a tip-off last week led to Glenn looking in to the previous case and deciding that Sampson had "overstepped the professional boundaries between player and coach".

But Sampson was still allowed to take charge of England's first qualifier for the 2019 World Cup on Tuesday night, a 6-0 victory over Russian Federation. We have investigated those properly, there have been two separate investigations actually which have broadly concluded there's no systematic evidence for that.

These landings were to be attempted over water, while the first attempt to land on solid ground succeeded on December 21st, 2015. Another failed landing is captioned: "Well, technically, it did land... just not in one piece".

"They [the FA] have based their decision [to sack Sampson] on this historical investigation from a few years ago", said Collins.

Sampson became manager of Bristol Academy in 2011 after previously heading an under-18s development squad. "He should never have been appointed in the first place and action should have been taken a long time ago".

The details of Sampson's improper behaviour have not been made clear but they are understood to involve a relationship with a player, although there is no suggestion of any criminal wrongdoing.

Chelsea Ladies and England striker Aluko alleged that Sampson had racially abused her over a comment that he made regarding her family having the Ebola virus - a claimed that Sampson denied - and that a culture of bullying had spread under his tenure.

On Monday, Justice Anthony Kennedy temporarily blocked the 9th Circuit's decision, which would have gone into effect Tuesday. With the Supreme Court's order on Tuesday, these have prevented the above rulings from going into effect for now.

The FA, however, has now admitted the safeguarding team insisted Sampson go on an course to address his behaviour at Bristol, but no senior official thought to ask for more details or read the unit's report until last week.

A club source said it was "a shock" to learn Sampson had lost his job and the FA had not contacted them about the case.

He was present when Sampson was interviewed for the job but has said he was unaware of any of the allegations from Sampson's time at Bristol. That was originally meant to investigate the handling of Aluko's racism complaint, but will now look for answers on the whole Sampson affair. "Clearly the FA have fallen a long way short of what we would expect from them, and this is not the first time".
