Jordan Pickford, the Everton goalkeeper, is the focus of the new controversy in English football and is being investigated by police after a pub riot last Sunday.
The Guardian, according to the newspaper the sunHe was part of a group involved in the beating scene with other agents, although the newspaper ensured that only his friends exchanged assaults, leading to the player’s acquittal.
Pickford left Beggar’s Bridge pub in East Boldon before police arrived at the scene at 9 p.m. and an investigation was already opened. The aggression resulted in a broken nose for one of the participants.
A witness was quoted by The Sun as saying: “Beckford was provoked. All I heard were ‘small weapons’. It happened as soon as they walked in. They didn’t even have time to sit down and have a drink. Pickford wasn’t hurt and walked out of the bar as soon as the altercation started.”
“Small arms” turns out not to be a new provocation for Pickford. Guardians are often provoked by opposing fans at games, and it is common to see balloons of T-Rex – the dinosaur known for having short arms – in the stands.
