Everton to research allegations of racism from Brentford duo Ivan Toney and Rico Henry | Football | Sport

Published:

Everton have vowed to work with the authorities including the Merseyside Police after Brentford duo Ivan Toney and Rico Henry made public allegations that their families were racially abused. The Bees pair took to Twitter to indicate solidarity with their family members, who had travelled to Goodison Park to look at their relatives in motion for Thomas Frank’s fearless side.

Although he didn’t get on the scoresheet, Toney was an actual outlet in attack for Brentford all afternoon, assisting their first-half equaliser, while Henry netted the third with a nice header to seal all three points for the visitors.

Nonetheless, the superb, spirited team display was sadly marred by the events off the sphere.

Toney tweeted: “And for the person that racially abused my family I’ll do all the pieces I can to get you the punishment you deserve!”

Everton’s official account responded to Toney’s post by declaring the club will perform a full investigation into the incident: “There isn’t a place in football – or society – for racism. We’re assisting Merseyside Police to make sure the person is identified and handled appropriately.”

Everton had taken the lead the Dominic Calvert-Lewin got the ultimate touch on Richarlison’s flick across goal.

But Brentford responded well and were handed a way back into the sport when last-man Jarrad Branthwaite brought down Toney before receiving a straight red card.

The Bees were then level when Yoane Wissa’s goal-bound effort was diverted in by the pinnacle of Seamus Coleman.

Richarlison then restored the lead for 10-man Everton from the penalty spot, when he sent David Raya the fallacious strategy to send Goodison Park into pandemonium.

After the interval, Wissa glanced home to equalise for the Bees in front of the travelling supporters and moments later, it will get even higher…

Darting into the box, wing-back Henry timed his run to perfection to move past Jordan Pickford in what would eventually proved to be the winner.

Everton were then reduced to nine men when substitute Salomon Rondon was shown a straight red card for a two-footed tackle on Henry.

Brentford frontman Toney also took the prospect to mock Everton fans for his or her 3.30am firework display outside the team hotel within the early hours of Sunday morning.

He wrote on Twitter: “Lovely display from the boys but not nearly as good because the fireworks late last night. Normally I’m being woke up by my son but fireworks was a recent one. Big 3 points!! Fans right behind us. Onto next week.”

Pontus Jansson later added: “You would a minimum of do it greater than 10 seconds!”
