The FA bans Peter Beardsley, a former Newcastle United Under-23s coach for 32 weeks for being a racist. The Football association punished Beardsley after he was found guilty on three counts of offensive language towards the club’s U23 players, the FA said on Thursday.
Peter Beardsley was a former England international player. Also, he won the league while playing for Liverpool during his prime. He has been suspended since January last year after he was accused of bullying academy midfielder Yasin Ben El-Mhanni. Yasin Ben was 22 at the time.
Moreover, Beardsley was accused of calling a black player a “monkey” and had questioned the legitimacy of the age of one or more players of African origin, one of whom was 17.
“An independent Regulatory Commission has suspended Peter Beardsley from all football and football-related activity for a period of 32 weeks until 29 April 2020.” The FA announced after the hearing.
