Brentford striker Ivan Toney apologized for using an expletive word with reference to the club in a video on social media. The forward used the words “f*** Brentford” after which the club launched an investigation. Premier League clubs are currently on holiday during the winter break with Brentford in Dubai. Toney claims that the video clip was edited and does not tell the full story.
“I am aware of a video of me that was published on social media today, taken in Dubai where I have been on holiday during the winter break. In it, I used language that was unacceptable,” Brentford striker Ivan Toney said. “The video was cut short and edited, but I have to accept the impact this has had and I realize I should not have put myself in this position.”
“I have explained to the gaffer what happened and apologized to him but I also want to apologize to all Brentford fans. I respect the way you all support the team and I have to say how much I love playing for the club and for you,” he added. “I’ll be back at training next week, working hard to score more goals to win us more games for the rest of the season.”
