FA Demand Newcastle Release Findings Of Beardsley Racial And Bullying Investigation

The announcement that Peter Beardsley was leaving Newcastle yesterday was shrouded in mystery.

That’s because 14 months ago Peter was suspended after a complaint was made by Yasin Ben El-Mhanni of racism and bullying.

That was backed up by written submissions at the time from five of his team-mates.

Newcastle conducted their own investigation into the charges but no results were shared with the public, and now 14 months later Beardsley has left the club after having been suspended early last year.

Since early last year, Ben Dawson has been doing a good job managing the U23 squad in place of the suspended Beardsley.

But the FA are still looking into those charges of racism and bullying even though Beardsley has now left Newcastle.

Beardsley has vehemently denied the allegations made against him, but we have no idea what those allegations are in any great detail.

But he was suspended after the Newcastle investigation into the charges made by El-Mhanni.

It looks like it’s not going to be possible for Newcastle to keep the results of their investigation private.

The FA have demanded Newcastle release the results of their own investigation into Beardsley.

If the club are not willing to do that then the FA will likely launch their own investigation and make those findings public.

An FA spokesperson has said this:

“The allegations made against Peter Beardsley continue to be under consideration by the FA.”

“We are not in a position to comment further at this time.”

Newcastle (Managing Director Lee Charnley) have not handled these accusations very well at all and at least from the outside – they seem to have tried to sweep them under the rug.

Comments welcome.

    This is typical, he said, he did, he didn’t, like Newcastle United news about sale of the club, just another footnote in this years trials and tribulations of NUFC.

    Can we just go a week without some bullshit coming up about our club that once again puts us in the spotlight.

    If MA does have a PR firm working for him, where the fcuk are they now.

    I think Peter Beardsley was a fantasic and an amazing player but I saw him at a “Talk In ” with John Gibson at The Black Horse in Monkseaton a few years ago.

    I wasn’t at all impressed with him as a person and his “way over the top” foul mouthed language in mixed company!

    Any proper organisation would have had this done and dusted quickly. I think the Comáin warrants a decent enquiry. I wudnt want to see it brushed aside because beardo was a good player. No smoke without fire in thus situation I think aswell and it has probably f all to do with tsunkus appallingly crass take on it involving range rovers
