Palace's Hennessey charged by FA over alleged Nazi salute
Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has been charged by the English Football Association (FA) after making an alleged Nazi salute in a group photo with team mates.
The 31-year-old has denied making such a salute and said on Twitter that he was calling out the person taking the photograph.
The FA alleges the action breached its rules relating "abusive, insulting or improper conduct and brings the game into disrepute".
It is alleged Hennessey's action also constitutes an "aggravated breach" under the FA rules because it included reference to ethnic origin, race, religion or belief.
Hennessey has until Jan. 31 to respond to the charge.
