Brentford launch investigation into Ivan Toney video clip on social media

Ivan Toney has scored six league goals this season

Brentford have launched an investigation after a video of Ivan Toney appearing to say ‘f*** Brentford’ was published on social media. The forward is thought to be on holiday in Dubai during the Premier League’s winter break.

The 25-year-old has scored six goals in an impressive league campaign so far. But now the Bees are looking into a video posted on Twitter that could land the former Peterborough player in trouble with his club.

‘Brentford FC are aware of the video and are investigating,’ said a club spokesperson.

Meanwhile, the Bees’ manager, Thomas Frank, accepted an £8,000 fine following his red card after the 2-1 Premier League loss to Wolves last weekend.

The Dane was dismissed after the final whistle by Peter Bankes after confronting the referee on the Brentford Community Stadium pitch.

Frank has now accepted the FA charge of improper behaviour towards the match official due to his overzealous remonstrations.

‘Brentford FC head coach Thomas Frank has accepted a Football Association fine,” a club statement said.

‘The FA charge was that Thomas’ language and/or behaviour towards referee Peter Bankes after the final whistle was improper. Thomas accepted this charge, and the financial penalty. Brentford FC has no further comment to make on the matter.’

Frank admitted he had let his emotions get the better of him when speaking to the officials at full time.

‘I was frustrated we didn’t get a point but I was relatively calm and there was a situation which triggered it,’ said Frank.

“I got a yellow card after a confrontation with a Wolves player, then I turned round to Peter and said ‘you can give me a second one as well’. He said it was because I was turning around and too aggressive.’
