Everton probe Pickford bar brawl allegation

LONDON, Apr 2 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 4/2/2019 12:53:53 PM IST

England goalkeeper Jordan Pickford is under investigation by his club Everton about his alleged involvement in a brawl in Sunderland.

The 25-year-old, who shone at last year’s World Cup, is believed to have reacted when revellers in a bar directed derogatory remarks at his fiancee Megan, who recently had their first child Arlo.

A video has spread on social media in which onlookers can be heard shouting “Jordan” as a fight breaks out before the man, believed to be Pickford, is dragged away.

Pickford had played in Everton’s 2-0 away win over West Ham on Saturday before spending a day off in his home city.

“The club has been made aware of an alleged incident involving one of our players and we are looking into the matter,” the Premier League club said.

Pickford came through the system at Sunderland but joined Everton for an initial $32.6 million when they were relegated from the Premier League in June 2017.
