In February, a Delhi court issued an arrest warrant against him after a FIR was filed at a Dwarka police station under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. Ambrose has denied the charges.

Anuj Gupta, owner of Sudeva Delhi FC, stated that his team had appealed to the AIFF for Ambrose’s permission. He also supported the move, claiming that a person is innocent until proven guilty and that he cannot be denied the opportunity to earn a living through his trade.

“He (Ambrose) has not been proven guilty. He is currently on bail and he cannot be barred from earning his livelihood. So, we have not done anything wrong (by appointing Ambrose as coach),” Gupta told PTI on Monday.

“We cannot do anything if the AIFF decides not to clear him (as coach) because all the players and staff need to be registered under the Centralised Registration System (CRS),” said Gupta who is also the president of Football Delhi.

It is learnt that the AIFF top brass considers Sudeva Delhi FC’s move as “unacceptable”.

“Not only the AIFF is going to shoot down the application of Sudeva Delhi FC to clear Ambrose as coach, but also the top brass considers the move as unacceptable,” a source said on the condition of anonymity.

“How can a club appoint a person against whom an FIR has been filed under POCSO Act as coach? He was sacked by the AIFF as coach of the U-17 women’s team on sexual misconduct charges and Sudeva wants the national federation to clear him as coach. How can this be even possible?”

Sudeva Delhi FC finished 12th and last in the I-League last season and were relegated to the second division.
