why Mark Sampson is resigning as England women's manager?

Mark Sampson is set to leave his role as England women's manager after fresh misconduct allegations were made.

The move comes after former Lioness Eni Aluko made allegations of racism, harassment and bullying within the England camp which sparked an investigation into Sampson's alleged conduct.

Sampson has been cleared twice, by a Football Association review and an independent investigation, and he firmly denies any wrongdoing.

However, anti-racism campaigners Kick It Out and the Professional Footballers' Association have both called for a fresh look at evidence.

The FA confirmed it was looking to re-open its investigation into the claims against Sampson after further evidence was submitted.

Sampson was alleged to have asked mixed race England midfielder Drew Spence whether she had been arrested during a tournament in 2015, a claim which he denied.

The claim was first made by Spence's team-mate Aluko, and Spence has since submitted written evidence to support it.

In a separate allegation, Aluko claimed Sampson told her to make sure her Nigerian relatives did not "bring Ebola" to an England game at Wembley in 2014.
