Brentford fan arrested for allegedly making homophobic and racist comments toward Man City player

Brentford FC have issued a statement after a club supporter has been arrested for allegedly making a racist and homophobic comment towards a Manchester City player.

The alleged incident occurred during their recent meeting, which City won 1-0.

Brentford have since confirmed that a person has been arrested following the allegations.

The club also said  that the person has been banned from Brentford matches pending those proceedings.

A Brentford spokesperson said:
“We are aware of an incident at the game on Wednesday night where a Brentford supporter was arrested for allegedly abusing a Manchester City player using racist and homophobic language – this is currently a police matter.

“As a condition of their bail, the individual involved is not permitted to attend any Brentford FC matches until the police investigation is concluded and may be subject to Club sanction pending the outcome of that process.

“Racist or homophobic abuse is completely unacceptable at Brentford FC and those found to have engaged in conduct of this nature will be subject to a significant stadium ban in line with Premier League sanctioning guidance.

“Through our Bee Together campaign we actively encourage behaviour which is consistent with the principles of fairness, respect and tolerance – those who can’t accept that are simply not welcome at Brentford.”
