27-year-old Peterborough striker, Jonson Clarke-Harris has been accused of breaking Football Association Rule E3.1 and E3.2 when old posts of his surfaced revealing homophobic and discriminating thoughts.
The striker is not permitted to participate in 4 games and has been fined 5,300 pounds by the Football Association.
The posts that signified his homophobic perception were posted sometime on the 27th of October, 2012 and the 6th of March, 2013.
The player is also under compulsion to attend a physical class meant to enhance his unlearning of homophobic conceptions.
At the time in 2012/2013, Clarke-Harris being 18 was still trying to set a solid foundation for himself in football as he made loan shuffles from Posh to Southend and Bury; he had made remarks about queer sexuality in ways found improper.
According to Football Association spokesperson, now that Peterborough’s forward has been suspended and admitted to being guilty of posts he made in 2012/2013 regarding his pervasive concept of homosexuality, he will be under the requirement to complete an education programme.
A Regulatory Commission which convened over the case found him guilty of inappropriate and degrading posts that were not the reputation of football.
These comments contravened the defined laws set by the Football Association seeking to make football an all-inclusive game.
Due to this verdict, the striker who has pushed Peterborough to the Championship by scoring thirty-one league goals will be missing the next four matches slated against Coventry, Bournemouth, Bristol City and Middlesbrough till the 16th of October.
