Fifpro concerned by case of Argentina’s Diego Alberto GuacciFifa’s adjudicatory chamber finds insufficient evidenceThe international players’ union, Fifpro, has said the decision of the adjudicatory chamber of Fifa’s ethics committee not to sanction an Argentinian women’s football coach accused of sexual harassment and abusive behaviour raises “extremely serious questions about how professional football keeps players safe”.Five female players gave evidence to Fifa accusing Diego Alberto Guacci of verbal abuse and sexual harassment carried out over a number of years. Guacci is technical director of the Argentinian women’s under-17s and under-15 girls’ national teams, a Fifa instructor for women’s football and a Fifa technical expert and mentor.
