Merseyside Police have arrested a 20-year-old man on suspicion of racially abusing Oldham’s Tom Adeyemi during the FA Cup game at Liverpool.

Some good news about the alleged Racial abuse of Oldham’s Tom Adeyemi at Anfield in the FA Cup on Friday night.

Merseyide police have arrested an Aintree man following the incident, where someone in the Anfield crowd aimed racist abuse at the 20-year-old Oldham player during Friday’s FA Cup tie.

Kenny Dalglish’s men won the game 5-1 but the game was marred by the incident which saw Adeyemi, who is on loan from Norwich City, burst into tears.

A statement on Liverpool’s official website said that they had allowed the police every resource they could offer in the search for the miscreant.
“We take this matter extremely seriously and have today provided the police with the evidence we currently have available to us.
“This includes CCTV coverage and still photography of what we believe to be the relevant part of the stadium, statements from matchday stewards in that area and full access to all the footage captured by the cameras filming the match for our in-house tv operation.
“In addition, we have examined records of the tickets purchased in that part of the ground to see if they provide any additional information and have passed that on to the police.
“Finally, we would also urge any of our supporters who witnessed this incident or saw the individual involved and who have not already done so, to contact either the Club or the police.”
Lets hope the matter is brought to a swift conclusion and the furore over racism at Liverpool FC is finally brought to an end, without further punishment by the FA.
