Dario Gradi has retired from his position as director of football and from his role on the board of League Two side Crewe Alexandra.

The 78-year-old took charge of 1,359 games during three spells as manager between 1983 and 2007, guiding Crewe to four promotions, including twice guiding them into the second tier.

Gradi was suspended in 2016 pending a Football Association investigation into child sex abuse allegations. He denied any wrongdoing and appealed against the ban.

His suspension related to claims that he "smoothed over" a complaint of sexual assault against Chelsea chief scout Eddie Heath in the 1970s, when Gradi was assistant manager.

He has also always denied having any knowledge of the crimes of convicted paedophile Barry Bennell, who is serving a 31-year sentence for abusing boys while a coach at Crewe in the 1980s when Gradi was a manager of the club.
