West Brom Striker Jay Rodriguez Charged by FA After Racial Abuse Allegation

Share

Rodriguez was accused of using racist language after the incident in a Premier League match last month.

JAY RODRIGUEZ faces a minimum five-match ban if found guilty after the FA charged him with racially abusing Brighton's Gaetan Bong.

In the wake of the FA announcement, Rodriguez took to social media to reiterate his claim that he was innocent, announcing that he would take legal action to protect his reputation.

Rodriguez was also seen pinching his nose after the clash, with the incident reported to the FA by referee Martin Atkinson.

Should You Buy Whiting Petroleum Corporation (WLL) or Bill Barrett Corporation (BBG)?
Sell-side firms, on a consensus basis have a $33.74 price target on the name and a 2.60 recommendation, according to First Call. Los Angeles Management & Equity Research Inc stated it has 0% of its portfolio in Whiting Petroleum Corporation (NYSE:WLL).

The England worldwide, 28, is reeling after the FA charged him with "using abusive and/or insulting words which included a reference to ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race". First the referee told me to get back in position. "We can not accept this behavior in 2018". I asked him to repeat what he said and I think he realised what he said and tried to limit the damage. But I said, "You can't say that".

Rodriguez, though, has denied this and is understood to be upset by the accusation.

Cameroon defender Bong posted a since-deleted comment on his official Twitter feed after the game, saying: "Some words should not be said on a football field and specially not by players".

"As a Club we remain fully supportive and committed to backing Jay throughout this process", said Richard Garlick, Albion's Director of Football Administration.
