For the past few weeks, English football has been undergoing a series of corruption allegations which has even led to Sam Allardyce being removed from his managerial position in the English national football team.
Barnsley FC also had to remove their assistant head coach Tommy Wright as it was believed that he had taken payments in order to arrange for Barnsley to purchase part-owned players from a non-existent Far East firm.
Tommy Wright was initially suspended but after more investigations were done and everything appeared to have been indeed true, Wright was sacked a few days later.
Neil Warnock of Cardiff City is the latest figure of English football that has been involved with corruption scandals. These claims were made by Jason Puncheon who has worked alongside Neil Warnock in the Premier League a few years ago with Queens Park Rangers and with Crystal Palace.
Jason Puncheon recently released messages through his twitter account where he accused Warnock of doing things that are considered to be as dishonest and related to corruption.
Warnock responded by saying that all of these accusations of Puncheon were complete and utterly falseand it was later stated that the FA Commission had considered all of the messages and statements which were released by Puncheon to be unfounded without any real evidence.
Warnock said: “These allegations are completely and utterly false.The FA Commission considered all of the evidence in detail in 2014 and it found that the allegations which were published about me were unfounded. Any suggestion that the FA failed to investigate this matter is simply untrue’’
“In fact, Mr. Puncheon apologized to me and removed the allegations from his Twitter account. The FA fined him £15,000 and he was warned as to his future conduct.I am disappointed that these allegations have been repeated after Mr. Puncheon’s apology and after the FA investigated fully. If anyone had asked me the truth before publication, I would have pointed them to the FA website, where the facts are all easily accessible.”
After everything was said and done, Jason Puncheon had to eliminate his tweets as it looks like they his allegations were just untrue.
