Sunderland manager Moyes accused of making multiple “off camera remarks” to female reporters

Date Posted,April 3, 2017

David Moyes has become embroiled in a fresh controversy after he was accused of aiming multiple remarks at female reporters.

The Sunderland boss has come under scrutiny over comments made to the BBC’s Vicki Sparks after the defeat to Watford.

Off-camera footage showed Moyes warning Sparks, “you might get a slap even though you’re a woman.”

Moyes apologised for the incident and in a press conference on Monday said he ‘deeply regretted’ it.

The FA have asked Moyes to explain himself and now fresh allegations have come to light.

Alison Bender, a football host and presenter with ESPN, has suggested Moyes has made comments towards female journalists in the past.

“Unfortunately, these are not the first off camera remarks I’ve heard from him aimed at a woman so it makes my opinion a little different,” she wrote on Twitter.

Speaking on Monday, Moyes insisted the comments were made in “the heat of the moment.”
