Club responds to FA statement

FA conclude investigation into formal complaint.

24 September 2020

Wycombe Wanderers acknowledge the statement issued by the Football Association today (Thursday) in relation to a formal complaint which was made following the use of discriminatory language towards its player Adebayo Akinfenwa in July.

The full statement can be viewed here.

The Club disagrees with the conclusion of the Football Association (FA). The investigation confirms that the language was used. There is no place in sport for such comments.

The Club believes the FA had the opportunity to take appropriate steps to ensure the conduct was punished appropriately and to make sure that everyone knows that this type of comment will not be tolerated in the future. The failure of the FA to act is disappointing.
