Crystal Palace sporting director Iain Moody has resigned from his position, following allegations of him making racist, sexist and homophobic remarks by text between him and former Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay during their time at Cardiff City.
The Welsh Club, that sacked Mackay in December and suspended Moody in October have sent a dossier to the Football Association with details of the allegations.
An FA spokesman said: “The FA can confirm it is currently investigating this matter.”
The allegations have followed on the news that Mackay would not be taking over at Crystal Palace, despite being the favourite to replace Tony Pulis at Selhurst Park.
The Daily Mail have claimed that the following messages were sent:
On the arrival of South Korean international Kim Bo-Kyung
‘Fkn chinkys. Fk it. There’s enough dogs in Cardiff for us all to go around.’
On football agent Phil Smith
‘Go on, fat Phil. Nothing like a Jew that sees money slipping through his fingers’
On an official of another club
‘He’s a snake, a gay snake. Not to be trusted’
On a list of potential signings
‘Not many white faces amongst that lot but worth considering’
On a player’s female agent
‘I hope she’s looking after your needs. I bet you’d love a bounce on her falsies.’
