Mark Sampson Set To Leave As England Women’s Manager



Mark Sampson is set to leave his role as England women’s manager, according to BBC.

Sampson last took charge of the Lionesses on Tuesday night as they cruised to a 6-0 World Cup qualifying victory over Russia.

He took the job in 2013 and steered England to a World Cup semi-final in Canada two years later before guiding the team to the last four of the European Championships this summer.

Sampson was accused of racism, harassment and bullying by England and Chelsea forward Eniola Aluko and has been the subject of two investigations.

The 34-year-old was cleared following both a Football Association review and an independent investigation.

He denies any wrongdoing, but there have been calls by anti-racism campaigners Kick It Out and the Professional Footballers’ Association for a fresh look at evidence.

The England team gave a public show of support to Sampson following Nikita Parris’s opener against Russia on Tuesday.

Every member of the starting XI raced to the bench to celebrate with Sampson in his technical area.

Aluko later accused the England team of a “selfish” attitude following the celebrations.

The 30-year-old tweeted: “For the most together team in the world tonight’s “message” only shows a level of disrespect that represents division and selfish action.”
