London - England Women's manager Mark Sampson was sacked on Wednesday after evidence of "inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour" during his time at a previous club.

Sampson had been the subject of accusations of racism, harassment and bullying made by former England player Eni Aluko.

But the 34-year-old, cleared over those allegations, has instead been dismissed by the Football Association following a historic safeguarding investigation into his conduct while manager of Bristol Academy.

"The Football Association can confirm that Mark Sampson's contract as England Women's head coach has been terminated with immediate effect," an FA statement read.
