West Brom Midfielder Jake Livermore Won't Face Disciplinary Action for Confronting Fan

Livermore heard the comment and stepped into the crowd to confront the supporter

The FA decides not to take any action against West Bromwich Albion's Jake Livermore over his confrontation with a West Ham United fan.

Jake Livermore confronted a West Ham supporter during a Premier League game.

Livermore became embroiled in a row with a spectator after being substituted in West Brom's 2-1 defeat at the London Stadium last week.

However, sources have told ESPN FC that the decision to remind Livermore of his responsibilities was taken in order to ensure that the player was aware of the potential risks to his personal safety by confronting supporters.

Following the incident, an individual was removed from the stadium by security staff - although it is yet to be determined whether Livermore's claims were accurate.

It subsequently emerged that the fan had allegedly made a reference to the death of Livermore's infant son in 2014.

This isn't the first time the FA has looked kindly upon the player, having decided against banning him after he tested positive for cocaine after his son's death. "Albion were very appreciative of the swift response by the officials of West Ham in dealing with this matter and are more than happy to leave any further action they deem appropriate in their hands". "The club would like to think that all right-minded football supporters could understand this reaction which did not result in any physical exchanges before Jake was led away to our dressing room", it read.
