Peter Macnicoli is a former England international.
He’s also the founder of The Peter MacNicol Foundation, which raises money for the families of the victims of the Manchester bombing.
But for his work as an ambassador, he has been criticised.
The Peter Mocs have been accused of exploiting the tragedy for their own benefit, with some of their charity work criticised by politicians and journalists.
A series of reports from the Guardian, The Guardian website and The Sunday Times in the UK and the US criticised Macnicols work.
Macnicolls critics have suggested he is exploiting the bereaved by trying to make a political point.
“He’s exploiting the grief of the families for the sake of a political agenda,” said John MacNaughton, the former BBC sports commentator and now an author and journalist.
MacNicolls is one of a handful of ambassadors working with the Foundation.
He is the third ambassador to the charity to be suspended over the past two years.
The others have been a former football coach and an actor.
MacNaughtons work with the Manchester Foundation is also criticised by some in the football community.
“You could see how the Peter Maccicoli would take it as an opportunity to make some sort of political statement, and that’s very, very wrong,” said Ben Stokes, the president of the Football Association.
The foundation’s work has been recognised by the Football League and other football associations around the world.
“We believe in supporting the families,” Macnicolls said.
“The Manchester Foundation’s role is to help families through the trauma of the attack.
We understand that people have families that are struggling to recover and we’re all trying to help.
We are here to support the families.”‘
I don’t think I’ve ever felt this pressure before’ It was not until this year that the MacNicolls received a letter from the Football Federation of England asking for an explanation from them.
“It was pretty tough,” MacNicolls told the BBC.
“I was a little bit shocked.
I had never felt this much pressure before.”
The letter came in the form of a form letter that the foundation wrote to the Football Foundation.
It was sent to the foundation’s chairman and founder, Paul Wollaston, and was signed by the foundation chairman, Peter MacNicol.
MacNeil was not able to read the letter, but he said it was “very important”.
“I’ve always been very careful not to make statements on behalf of Peter M. Macnaughtons Foundation because we would have to defend ourselves and that would be very difficult,” he said.
MacNeills father Peter Mancill, a footballer, said he was “surprised” the letter was sent.
“At first, I was shocked,” he told the ABC.
We don’t like to be the ones in the middle of the argument.” “
But we don’t want to be political.
We don’t like to be the ones in the middle of the argument.”
But the letter did not deter MacNeely from speaking out.
“If you’ve got people coming in to you to talk about football, what are they going to talk to you about if you’re not doing the job of a journalist?” he said on Monday.
“My job is to give the truth and get the facts right, and I’m not doing that because I’m a journalist.”
MacNicoli said he would “not be taking it lying down”.
He has since apologised to the families, but said he still has “no idea” what will happen to his position.
“Maybe we’ll go through a little controversy about it,” he joked.
“Whatever happens, I’m going to be able to walk away from it.”
Macnicole said the foundation had done a “good job” of working with families, adding “I don´t think I haven’t felt this before”.
“There are many people who are in Manchester today who have lost loved ones, but it’s not a tragedy that affects us personally,” he added.
“All that really matters is that these people are OK and that they can get on with their lives.”
A former Manchester United striker Peter Mankar said MacNickson’s comments were “ridiculous”.
“It’s just absolutely ludicrous that this person can be a football ambassador for a charity that works so hard to help the bereave families,” he wrote on Facebook.
“For someone like Peter MacMaughton to say something like that is absolutely outrageous.
It’s a disgrace.”
