England coach under investigation over racial discriminatory acts towards Nigerian-born player Eni Aluko

England women's goalkeeping coach Lee Kendall is to be investigated by the English FA over alleged unacceptable behaviour towards striker Eniola Aluko. The FA apologised to Nigerian-born Aluko on Wednesday for racially discriminatory remarks by former England manager Mark Sampson.
The FA said in a statement “The FA can confirm we are investigating England Women goalkeeping coach Lee Kendall following new evidence that came to light on Wednesday alleging unacceptable behaviour towards Eniola Aluko during an England camp.”
Aluko said the 36-year-old Kendall, who took the job in 2014, had spoken to her in a fake Caribbean accent. She said “I don't think he meant it maliciously, he may not have been aware of how annoying it got. I'm not Caribbean, I'm of African descent. I thought it was another example of an ignorant mindset and behaviour towards me.”
