Peter Beardsley issues statement in wake of bullying investigation at Newcastle

The Newcastle United development coach is in danger of losing his job after several African players within the club's academy accused him of racial abuse, according to a report in the Telegraph.

The 56-year-old, who has agreed to take leave as an investigation into the allegations continues, has issued a categorical denial after meeting club officials to give his version of events.

It emerged at the weekend that 22-year-old winger Yasin Ben El-Mhanni had made a formal complaint, backed by statements from team-mates, and the investigation has broadened since.

Beardsley is aware of the allegations but has yet to comment.

Peter Beardsley has found himself the subject of an investigation after being accused of bullying and racism.

The 2019 Niro EV will likely retain the smooth panel that replaces the brand's familiar "tiger nose" grille. It is a lightly restyled version of the company's existing Niro hybrid compact SUV.

Ben El-Mhanni was also contacted by a Newcastle ex-player who also announced that he was also bullied by the same coach.

The former England global was asked to attend a meeting with the club's managing director Lee Charnley and head of safeguarding Steve Swinyard.

It's understood that no decision was made and further evidence will be heard from the complainants later this week.

"It would be inappropriate for the club to comment further until the conclusion of this investigation".

It is not the first time Beardsley - a member of the England side that reached the 1986 World Cup quarter-finals and 1990 semi-finals - has been subject to an inquiry over bullying accusations.
