Interviews in full: Footballers speak out over sexual abuse

Victoria Derbyshire speaks to Chris Unsworth, Jason Dunford, Steve Walters and Andy Woodward, who all claim to have been sexually abused by former Crewe Alexandra coach Barry Bennell.

Bennell, 62, was jailed in 1998 for sex offences against children and was imprisoned again last year.

Crewe Alexandra and Manchester City – where Bennell worked as a coach – have begun internal investigations.

Dario Gradi, who was Crewe Alexandra’s manager for more than 24 years and is now their director of football and academy director, offered “sympathy to the victims of Barry Bennell”.

The Victoria Derbyshire programme is broadcast on weekdays between 09:00 and 11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News channel
