Scan­dal forces Kiwi boss to quit

The Citizen (KZN) - - SPORT - Welling­ton

– New Zealand Foot­ball (NZF) pres­i­dent Deryck Shaw re­signed yes­ter­day in the wake of a bul­ly­ing scan­dal in­volv­ing the na­tional women’s team, the Foot­ball Ferns.

Shaw apol­o­gised last week for his or­gan­i­sa­tion’s in­ac­tion over al­le­ga­tions about former women’s coach Andreas Heraf and said yes­ter­day he was step­ping down “for the good of the game”.

“I have de­cided that it is ap­pro­pri­ate at this time that I re­sign from my role as pres­i­dent, to al­low foot­ball to move for­ward,” he said.

“This is my de­ci­sion as the head of the or­gan­i­sa­tion and it is the right thing to do.” – AFP
