Livermore escapes FA rap

Filed: Wednesday, 10th January 2018
By: Staff Writer

West Bromwich Albion midfielder Jake Livermore will not charged by the FA despite attempting to attack a supporter in the stands during last week's Premier League match with West Ham at the Olympic Stadium.

The 28-year-old former Tottenham player jumped across an advertising barrier before attempting to confront an individual in the East Stand who, it was claimed by Livermore, had made a comment regarding his drug use following the loss of his baby son.

Yet despite the player's actions, which could have affected the safety of other supporters in the vicinity, the FA confirmed this morning that no further action would be taken. He was however urged not to repeat his actions and to allow stadium security to deal with any similar issues, should they arise in the future.

Following the incident, an individual was removed from the stadium by security staff - although it is yet to be determined whether Livermore's claims were accurate. KUMB understands that, at this point, no bans have been issued to any individual involved in the fracas.

Meanwhile supporters situated in the area at the time have offered different versions of what they believed they heard, with some suggesting Livermore incorrectly interpreted what was said. Despite this, the media - and the FA - have accepted the player's version of events.
