[헤럴드경제=민성기 기자] A senior executive at Chelsea FC, a prestigious English Premier League club, has been sacked after being found guilty of sexually harassing a female Korean agent.

The British media, including the Daily Mail and The Sun, reported on the 21st (Korea time) that Chelsea’s former commercial director, Damien Wallerby, had been sacked for sending an inappropriate message to a Korean female agent, Catalina Kim.

He was kicked out of the company less than a month after joining Chelsea FC.

According to the report, Willoughby texted Kim saying, “Are you taking all your clothes off, I’m naked?” He has also offered to arrange a meeting with Manchester City chief executive Ferran Soriano.

Willoughby is said to have first met Kim in 2015 when he took a job at Manchester City. Kim informed the club about the sexual harassment, and Chelsea took immediate action after confirming it.

The Chelsea club said it had “terminated the contract with the Wallaby commercial director with immediate effect” and had “investigated the inappropriate messages sent to him prior to joining Chelsea earlier this month.”

It happened before joining, but he added that it was against the new culture of the club.

Meanwhile, Willoughby sent an inappropriate message to Korean agent Catalina Kim (Korean name: Nana Kim). Catalina Kim, CEO of C&P Sports Group, works to connect Korean companies with European professional soccer teams.
