Peter Beardsley Leaves Newcastle as Investigation Opens Over Bullying and Racism Claims

Peter Beardsley is facing an internal investigation into allegations of bullying

Newcastle Under-23s coach Peter Beardsley will meet with club officials on Monday after finding himself at the centre of allegations of racism and bullying.

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

In 2003, Beardsley and then-academy directorKenny Wharton were cleared of bullying three youth players at the club's academy, with racial abuse mentioned in one case.

"Peter Beardsley categorically denies the allegations".

Sources revealed at the weekend that 22-year-old midfielder Yasin Ben El-Mhanni had lodged a complaint of bullying against former England worldwide Beardsley, and it has since emerged that further allegations have been made.

"Allegations of unfair treatment have been made, which are now being investigated".

Neither Beardsley or the club are commenting on the allegations. It is hoped the investigation will conclude quickly.

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.
