Ex England goalkeeper, Rachel Brown-Finnis, says women's football has
Ex England goalkeeper, Rachel Brown-Finnis, says women's football has been "dragged through the mud" following Mark Sampson sacking.
Mark Sampson was dismissed on Wednesday after evidence of "inappropriate" behaviour in a previous role he held.
The 34-year-old, hired by the Football Association in 2013, was investigated in 2014 over safeguarding allegations but was found not to pose a risk.
The FA board met on Monday to discuss the issues surrounding Sampson's dismissal.
In a statement, the board said it was "confident" the right procedures are in place to prevent a similar issue arising now or in the future.
The former England manager was also cleared this year of wrongdoing following discrimination allegations made by England players, including that of Chelsea striker Eniola Aluko.
"The investigations threw up more questions than answers," added Brown-Finnis, who retired from international football in 2015.
Aluko and FA representatives will meet on 18 October to give evidence to a parliamentary committee.
Sampson was sacked following England's 6-0 victory over Russia on Tuesday.
