More players are coming forward in the wake of emotional and verbal abuse accusations made against former Chicago Red Stars coach Rory Dames, who resigned from his post the day before the allegations came to light.

Carmelina Moscato, who played for the Red Stars in 2013, said she requested a trade because of Dames’ treatment of her.

“Was told no one wanted more Canadians which was the kindest comment I received,” she wrote on Twitter in response to a thread started by former Red Stars players Melissa Tancredi and Abby Erceg. “Lots of hurt. Needless to say, this needed to be unearthed and we are starting to see a cleansing of systemic toxicity.”

Rosie White, who made 12 appearances for the Red Stars in 2018, quoted the NWSL Players Association’s statement in a tweet of her own.

“The players in the league deserve so much more,” she wrote. “Abusive coaches like Rory Dames have hurt and held back too many players and people.”

Dames, who resigned as head coach of the Red Stars late Sunday night, has been accused of verbal and emotional abuse by multiple players, including Christen Press, Sam Johnson and Jen Hoy. Press, a forward for Angel City FC and the U.S. women’s national team, said she first reported Dames’ behavior to U.S. Soccer in 2014 and filed a formal complaint with the federation in 2018.

The report comes on the heels of a tumultuous season for the NWSL off the field. Five of the league’s 10 coaches left their clubs while facing accusations of abuse, including Richie Burke of the Washington Spirit and Paul Riley of the North Carolina Courage.
