FA to name new England Womens Manager in 2018

FA to name new England Womens Manager in 2018  

Mark Sampson was sacked from the Manager role in September this year after evidence of "inapprop­riate and unacceptable" behaviour with female players in a previous role.

Under-19s head coach Mo Marley took over on an interim basis.

An FA spokesperson said: "The process to appoint the head coach is ongoing."

The spokesperson added: "With the team now ranked third in the world, and with the aim of getting to first in the world, it is important that the right appointment is made - we have plenty of time before England's next Fifa Women's World Cup qualifier in April 2018.

Head of Women's Football at the FA, Baroness Sue Campbell, had told the BBC in October that interviews for the job would take place on 4 December.

Marley led England to victories in World Cup qualifiers against Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kazakhstan, as well as a friendly defeat away in France.
