Revealed: The 3 racist comments Peter Beardsley’s made towards NUFC U-23’s – Disgraceful

After being found guilty of ‘racist and abusive language’ towards NUFC U23 players following an FA hearing, Peter Beardsley has been banned from football for 8 months.

The ongoing case against the former Newcastle coach has finally reached its sad conclusion and the three counts of ‘racist and abusive language’ towards black NUFC U-23 players have now been revealed.

As the FA’s full report states, he was found guilty of 1) calling an African player a “monkey” 2) saying “You should be used to that” as African players climbed trees at a ‘Go Ape’ obstacle course and 3) saying “It’s cos you’re not 18” to an African player to suggest fraud in declaring age:

It’s also emerged that ‘at least 23 players’ gave evidence against Beardsley – a damning stat – while the panel were in “no doubt” he called player a “monkey” and had “serious reservations about his credibility”.

A part of the statement released on behalf of Peter Beardsley says “NUFC did not provide relevant training & education for Peter”, but I have no idea what his team are insinuating here.

It’s not the club’s responsibility to stop him from using racist language, it’s his, and he must take responsibility for what he’s done.

He may be a club legend, but that can no longer be used as an excuse to let him get away with this disgraceful behaviour.
