Mark Sampson, Former England Women manager and Stevenage caretaker, has been charged with an aggravated breach of FA rules over an alleged racially discriminatory comment.

It’s reported that in September, the FA opened an investigation after receiving a complaint about a comment made during a conversation about possible transfer targets.

It was alleged that Sampson kicked against the possible signing of a centre-half when his name was mentioned. He said the club should not recruit him because he was Nigerian. 

The alleged incident is said to have occurred on transfer deadline day on the  2nd of September during a discussion amongst Stevenage’s coaching staff about potential transfer targets.

Sampson, however, denied the allegations saying: ‘The allegation is untrue and there are four independent witnesses who can confirm that’s the case.’ 

The FA in a statement today said: ‘It is alleged that a comment made by the Stevenage FC caretaker manager breached FA Rule E3(1) as it was improper and/or abusive and/or insulting.

It is further alleged that the comment also constitutes an ‘aggravated breach’, which is defined in FA Rule E3(2), as it referenced ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race and/or nationality.

‘He has until 6 December 2019 to provide a response to the charge.’

Apparently, this isn’t the accused first rodeo. In 2017, Eniola Aluko, who is the elder sister of Nigeria striker Sone Aluko, accused Sampson of subjecting herself and her Nigerian family to a ‘racist’ jibe about the ebola virus.

According to Eniola, Sampson told her to ensure her Nigerian relatives did not bring the Ebola virus to London ahead of England’s friendly against Germany at Wembley in 2014. 

Also, in 2018  Sampson was sacked by the FA after they found ‘clear evidence of inappropriate relationships the Welshman had with female players while he was the manager of Bristol Academy.
