Club Statement: Fa Investigation

15 January 2018

Brighton & Hove Albion defender Gaetan Bong has requested that The Football Association fully investigate his allegation against West Bromwich Albion's Jay Rodriguez.

Albion left-back Bong reported Rodriguez to match official Martin Atkinson, for a verbal comment made during Saturday's 2-0 defeat at the Hawthorns - and the referee included the allegation in his report to The FA.

As is FA procedure in these incidents, in response to the referee's report, Bong has subsequently confirmed the allegation and his wish for The FA to proceed with a full investigation into the incident.

Chief executive Paul Barber said, "Gaetan has the full support of everyone at the club through this process.

"The club will also assist The Football Association in their investigation, but at this stage we would prefer not to make any further comment until this process has concluded."
