Holgate and Firmino Interviewed by FA in Racism Investigation

 

According to ESPN, The Football Association's disciplinary unit has interviewed Everton
defender Mason Holgate and Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino as part of the investigation
into alleged racism during the recent Merseyside derby at Anfield.
Everton defender Holgate appeared to shove Firmino into the advertising hoardings as the
ball trickled out of play, prompting an angry response from the Brazilian, where he
approached Holgate and yelled at him.
The FA is investigating claims by Holgate that he was racially abused by Firmino after the
allegation was included in match referee Bobby Madley’s match report, triggering an
invrstigation.
ESPN say Firmino and Holgate have both been interviewed as part of the enquiry, along
with other key witnesses. No timescale has been put on the investigation at this stage, with
the FA preferring a considered decision to a swift one.
An FA statement, issued earlier this month, said: "The FA can confirm that referee Bobby
Madley was made aware of an allegation during the Liverpool versus Everton game at
Anfield last night and has subsequently reported this to The FA, which will now begin making
enquiries into the matter."
