Welsh Goalie Probed After Pic of Him Allegedly Giving Nazi Salute Goes Viral


The English Football Association has decided to launch an investigation into allegations that Crystal Palace’s goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey had made a Nazi salute. The footballer, however, has he denied that he made the gesture, insisting his that it has been misinterpreted.

The photo now circulating on social media has brought the keeper under fire, as his arm gesture resembled a Nazi salute. 

​Amid the backlash, he explained on Twitter that he was just waving and shouting to the person taking the picture and would never make a “completely inappropriate type of salute”.

​The explanation was met with sarcasm, as many didn’t seem to believe Hennessey.


​However, some offered a “save” for the keeper and his story.

​Hennessey, who plays for the English Premier League team Crystal Palace, has made 81 appearances for Wales, including games of the Euro 2016, where his team made it to the semi-finals
