12 months ago

There has been an update on the Peter Beardsley situation at Newcastle United.

Former star player, the Newcastle Under 23s boss has been suspended for the past five months.

This followed allegations by young players as to how they were treated by Peter Beardsley and comments he supposedly made.

In an exclusive, Craig Hope at The Mail has revealed that an independent appeal has found that ‘Peter Beardsley did treat Yasin Ben El-Mhanni unfairly and make discriminatory comments.’

The appeal also found that ‘His treatment of player Yasin Ben El-Mhanni was found to be ‘generally unfair’ when Beardsley was in charge.

The 22 year old El-Mhanni made the official allegation back in January and then in March found himself on the list of players set to be released at the end of this month (June).

The Mail exclusive also reveals that ‘A follow-up hearing into allegations of racism against Beardsley’ was held in May.

This took place following statements made by a number of  academy players.

The newspaper says that Peter Beardsley continues to deny all the allegations.
