England women's goalkeeping coach Lee Kendall has been sent home as the FA launch an investigation into claims of racism against him.

Kendall was not on the bench for Friday night's friendly against France in Valenciennes, with men's Under 21 goalkeeping coach Tim Dittmer arriving a few hours before kick off to prepare the goalkeepers in the pre-match warm-up.

The FA announced on Thursday that they would investigate Kendall after striker Eniola Aluko claimed during an evidence session in the House of Commons that he used a mock Caribbean accent when speaking to her.

Aluko is British of Nigerian heritage.

The FA took the decision to send him home on Friday, but insisted he is not officially suspended from his position and curiously did not announce that he wasn't there until 50 minutes before kick off.

Meanwhile FA chairman Greg Clarke was accused of ducking diversity issues to save his job.

Former NBA star John Amaechi recounted a meeting earlier this year and said: 'I told him he should do something that would have an impact and he said, "That's what cost the last guy his job and I'm not getting f**king fired for equality".'

Amaechi was the first former NBA player to come out publicly, and is now a leading psychologist and expert on organisational change.

He said Clarke contacted him to say he wanted to talk about persuading a gay footballer to come out.

He said: 'I tried to persuade him that pinning your hopes on a player coming out and making everything OK was not how you would make a "meaningful change".'

The FA and sports minister Tracey Crouch are yet to respond to a request for comments on Amaechi's claims.
