Chelsea Sack Newly Appointed Senior Executive Amidst Claims Of Sexual Harassment | SEE DETAILS
Chelsea FC has sacked an executive who was appointed barely four weeks ago over allegations of sexual harassment.
According to Dailymail UK, the commercial executive director Damian Willoughby was sacked after spending less than four weeks with the blues over sending inappropriate text messages to a female football finance agent by the name of Catalina Kim.
Chelsea had released an official statement that stated:
‘Chelsea Football Club confirms that it has terminated commercial director Damian Willoughby’s employment with immediate effect.
Evidence of inappropriate messages sent by Mr Willoughby, prior to his appointment at Chelsea FC earlier this month, has recently been provided to and investigated by the club.
While they were sent prior to his employment at the club, such behaviour runs absolutely counter to the workplace environment and corporate culture being established by the club’s new ownership.
