Leicester sack Willie Kirk after investigation into alleged relationship with player

Leicester

Leicester have sacked their women’s team manager, Willie Kirk, after an investigation into an alleged relationship with a player.

The WSL club said he “was determined to have breached the team’s code of conduct to a degree that makes his position untenable”.

The Guardian revealed on 8 March that Kirk had been suspended while the club carried out an investigation into an alleged relationship with one of his squad members.

The manager was then absent from the team’s 2-0 defeat of Liverpool, which earned them a place in the FA Cup semi-finals, where they will play Spurs at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 14 April, with Jennifer Foster in charge, supported by first-team coach Stephen Kirby.

They have since lost the two league games they have played, a 1-0 defeat to Tottenham and 3-2 loss against Brighton.
