Ex-Cardiff City player Jack Simpson charged over alleged racial abuse towards teammate…

Former Cardiff City player, Jack Simpson, is facing charges of misconduct for allegedly racially abusing a teammate during the team’s pre-season trip to Portugal in July.

The Football Association (FA) announced the charges on Tuesday, October 3, via a statement on X (formerly Twitter). Simpson, who is 26 years old and originally from Weymouth, left Cardiff City in August by mutual consent, ending his one-year stint with the club.

The FA has invoked FA rule E3, stating that Simpson’s language towards a teammate was abusive, insulting, and improper, contrary to FA Rule E3.1.

Moreover, it is alleged that this constitutes an “aggravated breach,” as it involved a reference, whether explicit or implicit, to race and/or color, as defined in FA rule E3.2. Simpson has until October 10 to respond to the charges.

Simpson began his career at Bournemouth, where he made eleven appearances in the Premier League. In January 2021, he signed with Scottish club Rangers before eventually joining Cardiff City in August 2022.

Despite having a year left on his contract, the defender left Cardiff and has been without a club since the end of August.
