Brentford FC statement on Julian Jeanvier

Response to incident in West Bromwich Albion fixture

25 March 2019

Brentford Football Club received complaints and enquiries about the behaviour of defender Julian Jeanvier in the last minutes of the Sky Bet Championship match against West Bromwich Albion on March 16.

 We also heard from the Football Association about the incident and Julian provided the governing body with a statement and the Club supplied video footage. Subsequently, the Club has been told there are no plans by the FA to bring any charges against Julian.

However, in discussions with Julian, the defender has admitted spitting in the proximity of West Bromwich Albion fans. He has asked that the Club publish this as an apology to any supporters involved in the incident. 

Brentford FC has made it very clear to Julian that such behaviour is unacceptable. The matter has been dealt with internally and is now considered closed.
