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.
Ambrose’s sacking was confirmed on Twitter by Dr S.Y. Quraishi, a member of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) running the affairs at AIFF.
“Alex Ambrose, Asstt Head Coach of Under 17 Women’s team has been sacked for sexual misconduct. Further action under process,” Dr S.Y. Quraishi tweeted.
The AIFF in its statement on June 30 had said: “An event of misconduct has been reported in the U17 women’s team currently on an exposure tour to Europe. The AIFF follows a zero-tolerance policy on indiscipline. As an initial action, the Federation has provisionally suspended the individual pending further investigation. The AIFF has asked the concerned individual to stop all contact with the team, return to India immediately, and be physically present for further investigations upon his arrival.”
