Nigerian-English footballer, Eniola Aluko has accused England women’s national team manager Mark Sampson of bullying and racial discrimination after he told her to make sure her Nigerian relatives did not bring the Ebola virus to a game at Wembley.
The thirty-year-old striker last year made a series of allegations to the Football Association in a complaint about the behaviour of Sampson, who was subsequently cleared of racial discrimination, bullying and harassment following an independent inquiry commissioned by the governing body.
She was dropped from the England squad just days after she had made the allegations and has not been picked by Sampson since then. The FA has insisted the timing of her being dropped from the team was purely coincidental as the review was confidential and anonymous.
It was reported last week that Aluko received a five-figure sum in an agreement to avoid disruption to England’s recent Women’s Euro 2017 preparations.
