Former India international striker Alex Ambrose, recently sacked by the AIFF due to sexual misconduct allegations, has denied any wrongdoing from his side and send a legal notice to the AIFF for “tarnishing his reputation by levelling frivolous charges”.
Further a notice issued by Mumbai-based advocate Madhukar P. Dalvi on behalf of Alex Ambrose stated, “My client was forced to admit to what he has never done by putting him under fear, duress and coercion. My client was not allowed to offer any explanation nor was my client intimated or informed about the charges/allegations/accusations levelled against by him.”
“My client has been sacked and terminated from his duties in an illegal, unlawful and unjust manner without following the due process of law.”
The counsel added that Ambrose was not given time to refute the allegations and that the AIFF “has been publishing false, frivolous and scandalous reports against my client and threatening and intimidating my client about serious actions including police action”.
Earlier the All India Football Federation has sacked Alex Ambrose, who was serving as the assistant coach of the Indian U-17 Women’s football team, for sexual misconduct.
