Crawley Town have sacked manager John Yems, days after it was revealed he had been suspended for allegedly abusing his own players with racist insults and running a segregated training ground where the club?s black stars use a separate changing room.

This comes a month after FA had opened a probe into Crawley Town manager John Yems’ conduct after a group of Crawley players reported his alleged use of offensive language to the PFA, with the League Two club suspending the 62-year-old the next day.
