Darnell Fisher who plays as a right back for the English Championship side, Preston North End, is set to face a Football Association (FA) probe for twice grabbing the genitals of Sheffield Wednesday’s Callum Paterson.
The incident took place on Saturday when the two sides faced each other. The game ended 1:0 in Preston’s favour.
However, the game was embroiled in controversy when English defender, Darnell Fisher grabbed the genitals of Paterson.
See the video below:
He got no booking for the act, but after video reviews, the FA are set to launch an investigation into the incident.
This is not the first time such an incident has occurred in men’s sports, as earlier this year, Joe Marler was banned for over five weeks for grabbing the genitals of Welsh player, Alun Wyn Jones, in the Six Nations Rugby Championship.
In rugby and football and many other sports, genital grabbing is prohibited.
Darnell was in another game caught on camera grabbing the buttocks of Icelandic footballer, Gunnarsson.
