Warren Holmes, 23, youth coach at Stoke City Girls, spoke out in light of Barry Bennell's convictions of 43 counts of sexual offences against children.
She said: "Serious questions need to be asked about how this unsafe rapist was allowed to carry out years of abuse on so many young boys in plain sight, much as Savile did at the BBC".
A cheer of "yes" came from the public gallery where six victims sat with family members as the final verdicts were read out.
Bennell will be sentenced at Liverpool Crown Court on Monday.
Andy Woodward, a victim of Barry Bennell, and partner Zelda leave Liverpool Crown Court. The 64-year-old was convicted of 50 counts of sexual abuse in total, admitting to seven charges at the start of the trial.
However, the outwardly flashy, charming Bennell used both clubs as vehicles to groom and manipulate pre-pubescent boys before sexually abusing them.
The prosecution said Bennell was a "child molester on an industrial scale". He also abused the trust of their families who had placed them into that care so they could pursue their dreams of being professional footballers.
"We broke the silence and we took back our voice".
"How can it be that no one realized something was wrong?"
The case has sparked wider allegations of sexual and physical abuse of boys at football clubs in Britain in the 1970s and 1980s, some of whom went on to become heroes of the terraces and global stars.
Mr Barnes told Dispatches: "He said we've had one or two reports about him. mucking about with kids or something like that".
An additional 86 complainants are understood to have come forward since November 2016 to say Bennell abused them in the past.
Crewe Alexandra put out a statement expressing its "deepest sympathies" to Bennell's victims.The club said it was not aware of any sexual abuse by Bennell and only became aware of any offences committed by him when he was arrested in the United States in 1994.
"We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the traumatic experience the victims and survivors have endured at the hands of this individual, and the bravery they have shown in coming forward".
During his trial, a witness said Gary Speed was one of four men linked to Bennell as young footballers who had gone on to take their own lives.
