Sudeva Delhi FC retracts, decides not to appoint tainted Alex Ambrose as coach

New Delhi, May 17 (PTI) Sudeva Delhi FC on Wednesday decided not to go ahead with the appointment of Alex Ambrose as its head coach after the All India Football Federation indicated it will not accept the recruitment of an individual accused of alleged sexual misconduct involving a minor.

The Delhi club had applied for clearance from the AIFF as it was mandatory to do register players and staff under the Centralised Registration System (CRS).

Ambrose was sacked as assistant coach of Indian women’s U-17 team for alleged sexual misconduct during a training and exposure tour of Europe last year.

A Delhi court had in February issued a warrant of arrest against him after an FIR was registered at a police station in Dwarka under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. Ambrose has denied the allegations.

“Considering the whole scenario and taking into account any possible impact from the fans and other stakeholders, we have decided not to go ahead and appoint him (Ambrose) as coach of my club,” Sudeva Delhi FC owner Anuj Gupta told
