The husband of US women’s team defender Crystal Dunn illegally distributed a controlled substance to Portland Thorns players in his role as the team’s athletic trainer, the National Women’s Soccer League announced following an outside investigation.
Pierre Soubrier was fired on Tuesday along with Thorns assistant coach Sophie Clough. The NWSL, beset in recent years by abuse and misconduct allegations, said Clough made unwanted contact with a player.
