FA launches investigation into alleged Jay Rodriguez comment

The Football Association is to investigate a remark allegedly made by West Brom forward Jay Rodriguez to Brighton defender Gaetan Bong during Saturday’s game at the Hawthorns, the governing body has announced.

Bong alerted the officials midway through the Baggies’ 2-0 win shortly after clashing with Rodriguez, and Seagulls boss Chris Hughton confirmed afterwards that a complaint had been made to referee Martin Atkinson.

The FA said in a statement: “The FA can confirm that referee Martin Atkinson was made aware of an allegation during the West Bromwich Albion versus Brighton & Hove Albion game at The Hawthorns yesterday and has subsequently reported this to The FA, which will now begin making enquiries into the matter.”
