# Brazil's Santos Women's Team Coach Resigns After a Series of Sexual Harassment Reports # Santos, a prestigious Brazilian professional soccer team, announced the resignation of its women's soccer team coach following a series of reports of sexual harassment and workplace harassment. According to AFP on the 9th, the Santos women's team released a statement the day before and officially announced that coach Clayton Lima would step down. **[바카라사이트](https://www.oncasino.site)** This action was taken after the club received a report that some players were molested and harassed by coach Lima during training. In a letter obtained by Brazilian media Globu, the players pointed out Coach Lima's inappropriate physical contact and sexually humiliating clothing. It is said that he showed up to training in shorts and no underwear, and that players complained of discomfort because his genitals were sometimes exposed. In addition, Globu reported that one player considered taking an extreme decision due to repeated remarks and insulting jokes that seemed to criticize the players' bodies. According to Brazilian news portal UOL, Lima has accepted his resignation but denies the allegations against him. The 49-year-old coach of Lima is regarded as a representative leader in the team's history, having won the Confederation of South American Football (CONMEBOL) Copa Libertadores Femenina in 2009 and 2010, the most prestigious [South American women's soccer club competition](https://oncasinosite.blog.ss-blog.jp/NCs-Quiet-Spirit-That-Even-Spurned-KIAs-9-Game-Winning-Streak?1694973395). From 2008 to 2011, he served as coach of the Brazilian women's national team. Coach Lima's resignation comes at a time when the difficulties of female soccer players, who are exposed to various sexual problems, including sexual harassment, are receiving attention around the world. On the 20th of last month, Luis Rubiales, the president of the Spanish Football Association, unexpectedly kissed his country's national team player, Renifer Hermoso, during the 2023 Women's World Cup victory, drawing criticism from around the world. Accordingly, Hermoso sued Chairman Rubiales on charges of sexual assault on the 6th, and Spanish prosecutors are also conducting a preliminary investigation, believing that the kiss in question could constitute a sexual crime. Coach Jorge Bilda, who led the team to victory in the World Cup, but faced continued opposition from players who said his coaching method was coercive, was eventually sacked by the [Spanish Football Association](https://www.newyorktimesnow.com/en/read-blog/30055).
