International – abuse scandal: resignation from US football, allegations from Australia and Venezuela

Cologne (SID) – The abuse scandal at the American Women’s Football Professional League NWSL has had further employee consequences. Washington Spirit chief executive and head owner Steve Baldwin announced his resignation on Tuesday following criticism over his handling of allegations against former coach Richie Burke. Burke was fired a week ago after investigations into allegations of harassment and toxic work culture.

Meanwhile, more and more allegations in women’s football are being made public around the world. The Australian Association announced the inquiry on Wednesday. Several former national players made the allegations. For example, Lisa de Vanna described incidents with her teammates at the beginning of her career.

“Have I been sexually harassed? Yes. Have I been bullied?”

In Venezuela, 24 of the country’s best players spoke. The group surrounding attacker Diana Castellanos called their former coach Kenneth Ceremetta a “demon” after accusing him of sexually abusing her in a statement on social media. The victim had already been abused as a 14-year-old boy. “We have decided to break our peace,” it said.
