Jordan Pickford: Punches thrown in video footage of England star

The incident occured outside a bar in the player's home town, Sunderland, and now police and his club, Everton, are investigating.


Video footage has emerged showing the alleged incident involving Everton and England goalkeeper, Jordan Pickford. The images, published on social media, appear to show the 25-year old involved in a street fight after initially posing for pictures inside the bar.

Pickford picked on, or picking a fight?

"At 12:19am (Monday), police received a report of a disturbance involving a large group of individuals on Tunstall Road, Sunderland," a spokesperson for Northumbria Police said.

"Enquiries are ongoing to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident and locate those involved. Nobody is believed to have been seriously injured and no arrests have been made."

The player's club, Everton, had earlier confirmed that they were also investigating.

"The club has been made aware of an alleged incident involving one of our players and we are looking into the matter," they said.
