Iain Moody has resigned from his post as sporting director of Crystal Palace.
His resignation comes after the Football Association confirmed it will look into text messages and emails Moody and Malky Mackay shared during their time at Cardiff City.
The sexist, racist and homophobic nature of the conversations saw Mackay miss out on becoming Palace manager, a day after he looked certain to take the reigns at Selhurst Park.
Palace announced Moody’s decision via a statement, which read: ‘In light of the events of yesterday, Sporting Director Iain Moody has tendered his resignation and it has been accepted with immediate effect.
‘There will be no further comment from the club on this matter.’
These messages came to light after a dawn raid on Moody’s south London home in March this year, as part of Cardiff’s £750,000 investigation into eight controversial transfers.
Moody’s computer and other electronic devices were seized after Mishcon de Reya were investigating wrongdoing relating to one of the eight deals.
